Biography of Derrick Hubert Schnabel

I was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer in May 2010 but remain upbeat and full of the joys of life. Certain experiences, like my 'work' with fellow terminal patients aged between 6 and 13 make my cancer the most wonderful gift I have ever received. My 'poems' have been written during many pain-disturbed sleepless nights. Although intended as 'word games' to pass the time, they do undoubtedly reflect my thoughts and experiences as well as reflections on life now that mine is coming to a close.

Nature Mother

nature mother

leaves shimmer where wind rushes in
rot red in rain
at a quiet waterhole
wild animals come
spread their spoor
some small and unsung
make me feel insubstantial
