Brigid in Cyberspace

Today is St. Brigid's Day, and that means you will find poetry posted on blogs all over the place. There's more information here.

So here's this poem I wrote quite a while ago about my mother's cancer:

Forty-nine syllables all for you, mother.
The years of your life run-
ning ragged down this page. Too many
fears creeping into your body
and hardening.
What saints
appeared to you then,
speaking your name?
