when the shadow of further pain is averted


amazing how this lifted weight
brings all the small things into
significance, once again —
wind in the pines,
birdsong,
the taste of dark chocolate,
a kiss.
all were dust and ash,
now revived.
is this a glim of 
resurrection?

So VERY, very glad the news was good, Leslie! Stress does a number on our bodies, and when we already have a condition to deal with, it doesn't help... I know! So Happy you are feeling free today. :o) ((LOVE & HUGS))
