Carpe Diem Special #160 Lolly's 2nd bedside vigilance
Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
I have a nice new CD Special by Lolly, our "summertime"- kukai winner, for you all. It's an "oldie, but a goodie", as Lolly says herself. I think she is right.
This, however, will not be a very long post, because I need to prepare my interview for a new job as an Advanced Nursing Practitioner Oncology for tomorrow, Friday August 7th. It's a complete new challenge in which I will become the "right hand" of the Oncologist. For example I have to write new protocols and create new ways for the treatment of cancer and I will take over part of the nursing and care issues from the Oncologist . So I am a bit excited, I hope (of course) they will give me that chance to grow in my job as an oncology nurse, we will see.
Ok back to our CD Special of today "bedside vigilance" by Lolly. Lolly wrote this haiku back in November 2013 and she recently posted it here at CDHK in response on our new feature "Modern Times Haiku".
In this haiku I sense the love for a past away loved one, her scarf cherished as a gem, a diamond ... maybe there is even a faint scent of this loved one's perfume ... A very strong haiku with a lot of emotions in it ...
Here is my inspired haiku:
times long gone faint touch of eau de Cologne grandmother's shawl
