    Hey Monica, yes I had a lumpy with 6mm clear margins (call it 1/2 inch in your world) 0 of 7. But apparently the radiologist wanted 4 biopsies on 4 cancer suspicious spots. They only did one, so that's what my BS operated on. The sad part is that they were all close. 9, 9:30 and 2 at 10:00. Could've scooped em all at once. But they only did one so three are left inside. So now more knife work, rads, chemo and tamoxifen for 5 - 10 years.

    Warm sands and great drinks

    Dancing until the morning

    My vacay will rock

    Damsels in distress / Exist only in the minds / Of the errant knights

    Looking for a way / To justify their lifestyle. / Armour-plated men

    Who drink and carouse / And congratulate themselves / On being manly.

    Better for women / Is for us dames to keep our / Selves out of distress.

    In the modern world, / Not bride but baby mama, / Damsel rescues knight.

    Haiku can express

    a thought a feeling a dream.

    Words are lovely things.

    Words can be flowers

    Words can be fluffy white clouds

    Words can also BITE.

    Sometimes the Metre falters

    Sometimes it goes astray.

    Sometimes thoughts run like water

    Sometimes they run away.

    ____

    Thoughts are captured in a flash

    Or lost once more in time

    To circle , dip, burn or crash

    While waiting for a rhyme. 

    ____

    Words will spew across the page

    Or gently land and fall

    There's no real way to gauge

    Just how the Muse will call.

    ____

    To rip out what hides in fright

    And show the dark within 

    Or touch laughter and the light

    Amidst  the ego's din.

    ____

    Sometimes the word's frustration

    Sometimes the choice is hard

    Sometimes exasperation

    Sometimes, oh yes, Sometimes,

    Sometimes, 

    I am a Bard!

    Red, be sure you let him know just being there and caring is a help....

    Glad you guys liked my poem. This is the poem I wrote in ten minutes when I showed a friend, who was an English major, another of my poems. He said" well, the Metre falters here, but you always get your feelings across." I said thanks Sat down, AND dang If this one didn't  just fall out on the paper.  LOL
