Stranger outcomes happen,

When opportunity’s tapping,

Wanting in

And you begin

Writing ideas you’re trapping!

He’s written ’bout Christ and trains–

Weather seems worth one’s pains….

Fashion poems are new

As something to do,

And the challenge takes working brains!

I’d say it is channeling energy,

Most of which has left me….

Shapes and sizes

And stylish surmises,

Still need a bard’s entrée.

“An eye for the women.” one said,

Focusing on their clothes instead..

“Clothes make the man”

And women, and can

Leave little more to be said!

YET–a poet describes,

Details that emanate vibes…

Along a track

That likes feedback,

Both positive and wise!

Each month–about this time—for the previous  two months (this one being no different)–the Author has been treated, in each eye with an injection.  I’m being treated for early macular degeneration behind the focusing part of my retinas.  Each month, after the first set, I tried to describe either the process or result…how it looks in the eye.

Closed eyes when injection’s through,

A rich purple background will do…

Big black spots

Budding smaller dots,

In aqueous fluid grew.

What’s this–a crevice colored,

Orange bound by yellow  under cover…

Of darkness of the lids

closed as I did,

Look on ,

Did the dots this thing mother?

This crack in the black disappeared,

Was it my imagination…high geared…?

A crevice full of light

From a dot black as night,

l it makes it sound weird!
