My Mother lost her best friend and companion. He will be missed. He was 89 and turning 90 on NoveMBERO 23. He took a drink and stopped, closed his eyes and died. He died at Happy Hour and he would have been glad to go that way!
here is the haiku i wrote for him
In the sunny garden
she holds his hand now cold
for the last time

WELL IT HAS BEEN 2 YEARS SINCE I HAVE WRITTEN!!!!
i HAVE BEEN ILL WITH DEPRESSION AND COLON CANCER!
i AM JUST FINE NOW.
Thanks be to God
Every bipolar episode has it's prize. It is a time on inertia during the depressive period. This (normal) period is one of discovery in all aspects of my life. I may switch to a newer medication that works better than i have been on these past few weeks. I will try Lithium, which is the only one so far dedicated to the illness and has worked well for years.
I never thought cancer was something that i would have to attend with.
A million kisses of haiku to all the people, medical and lay who have helped me!
In the cemetary
around the headstone
first snow drops
Scent of see weed
drifts into the graveyard
he walks alone
