A Diamond’s Tree

Sunspread shadows grace this lawn
Slingshot, wishbone, or tuning fork
Subtle fading cloudless sky
In recalling fall how
Everything died

Wondering why
I cherish spring
Bright tonal range
Refreshing breeze
Really simple
It can’t be…
Sparkling light
Through a diamond’s tree

Care for a Reading?

    The doctor is having to give Larry blood. He is bleeding somewhere so they are doing ct scans to find out where.

  13. Larry sounds like such a strong person. Thanks for keeping us all informed. He continues to be in our thoughts and prayers. Hang in there, Viola.

  18. Hello Adam,
    I got your message and want to thank you so much for asking about Larry. I told him that you have been asking about him and that made him feel good. He seems to be getting stronger since they gave him 2 units of blood. The doctor been doing lots of testing, and he is doing 2 tests tomorrow morning. One is checking his colon, and the other the doctor will be going through his mouth with a light to take a look inside of his stomach. Larry does not eat much at all, just enough so he won’t have to be feed by tubs. He said the reason he can’t eat is because his stomach feel like it is full all the time. I have put him in the hands of God and the doctors. I am trusting them to find out what he causing him to be so sick. One good thing, it doesn’t seem to be his liver like Doctor Edwards thought. Well my friend, I think I will go take myself a nice long hot bath and relax on the couch with a movie, I bet I will fall asleep. LOL Have to be back to the hospital real early in the morning. You have a nice weekend Adam and please be safe.
