Writer’s Digest Poem a Day Challenge

Writer’s Digest Poem a Day Challenge

During April and November Robert Lee Brewer, Poetry Editor of Writer’s Digest, posts daily prompts. Poets can post their work online at http://www.writersdigest.com/whats-new/2018-april-pad-challenge-day-2.

I have decided to chronicle what’s happening in our lives at the moment as the theme for this month’s poems. I’m not posting them on the Poem a Day website because they are considered published if I do.

The prompt for April 2 was “Portrait.” Here is my offering:

Portrait of an Illness

Husband of fifty-six years
complains of a sore hip.
We suspect arthritis.
Seek wisdom of doctors
for several months.

Finally, MRIs reveal cancer.
Biopsy pinpoints lung cancer.
PET scan shows disease
metiatized to bones
and beyond.

Diagnosis: stage 4.
Inoperable.
