Probably came fast,
As fast as a flash.
There was a flashing of lightning in the back,
Grounded the message from the doctor,
“Doc, can it only be bliss?”
Bliss was the throwback scene,
Seen was maroon, yellow and green,
Green in hand, but now what good,
Good dog, next to us stood.
Stood the time weathering,
Weathered by disease and differences,
Differences in the seasons seemed to be almost nothing.
Nothing stood in their way except: probably-
But, but, but-
Not a final yes to their diagnosis.

  1. Such an interesting poem. I’ll have to read it again. I like the rhythm of it.
