Sanity is
the bright orange yolk
of the egg
I ate this morning.

It is the
ruby throat
of the hummingbird
that hovered by me
before it disappeared into the leaves.

It’s the bee that stung me today
and that I cursed
as it died
to keep me awake.

And, it’s the
chewed up plantain leaf
I put on my bee sting
to calm the pain.

It’s the
dust I so carefully swept
from the corners
of my room.

It is the


between inhale and exhale,
the sensation after I sneeze,
the double rainbow I’ve never seen,
and the growing sense of ease as I begin to connect the dots,

one at a time,
connecting them
to get back my life
right as I am letting it go.

  1. >With the beginning of summer comes the blooming of trees, gardens and flowers, which in turn attracts bees and wasps of all kinds. But that is not the end of the worry of a sting. Many stings take place during the spring and fall months. Reason being, bees and wasps are cold blooded insects and they linger around people in order to absorb the body heat of humans, therefore increasing the chances of getting stung. Last week, I witnessed a 4 year old girl with her hand and forearm swollen to her elbow, from a wasp sting that she received to her fingertip the day before. The sight of her hand and arm brought tears to my eyes because I knew that if she had had Baker's Venom Cleanser Bee Sting Cure available when she was stung, none of her discomfort would have elevated to that extreme point of swelling and discomfort. Our web site has under gone some new additions worth taking a look at. 1988 investigative news video footage by George Ciccarone of Cincinnati's WKRC-TV interviews founder Ray Baker, a pharmacist and others about the effectiveness of Baker's Venom Cleanser on stings in people as the stings occur. This is a must see amazing video about how to cure bee stings with Baker's Venom Cleanser. the link is also available at our web site.

  2. >Interesting…a poem of mine has never sparked the addition of an advertisement to my blog. A chewed up plantain leaf works just dandy as well.
