Hospice

She placed it down-
Something you can leave behind she thought but wouldn't say
A green plant in a tub rested next to the bed
A lead laden hand stretched to touch its broken soil
Small thing in the way of things and wondered why.

She thought-
New white walls prepare you best for heaven
While darkness only lingers in the mind

[Hata Bildir]
