YOU DONT DESERVE THAT I DIE HERE

The malaise came on suddenly at 2200 meters

Pins and needles in legs, hard to breathe.

As the cold spread up my legs from my ankles,

I wondered, "…
You don’t deserve that I die here

Holding a friendly arm, I shuffle,

Muscles made old far beyond my years,

By dark chemicals made to give …

Baptism of light

Lying quarantined in a ward of one
I rest between the hour of needle points
And ponder how clever my veins are
At playing hide and seek with the nurses
Who wrap a rubber tourniquet around my arm
tap, hold, squeeze and finally make
That sharp plunge, and yet they miss.
And so, I leave them to it, and wander off.
I climb into my breath, which I own,
And slowly pull away from the kerb
Of this room, out through the window
Above the trees, the cars and the hubbub.
I hear the nurse speaking softly
"I didn't get any blood, I must try again"
But I am away in my helicopter of light
Soaring up over the city, content
To see that I can fly where I will.
Yes they have my punctured body
In that sparse room with lime green walls
But I am the pilot of my breath
With the wind on my scalp, I watch
The red orb drop slowly into the sea, with
Its rays, a tiara of light speading its fingers
across a thin and darkening sky.

About Healing & Transformation Through Self Guided Imagery:

“…this beautiful book (is) the loveliest introduction to and immersion in the practice of guided imagery I have ever seen… Guided imagery, as presented in this book, becomes more than self-help; it becomes a tool of self-realization.” —Linda Graham, author of Bouncing Back: Rewiring Your Brain for Maximum Resilience and Well-Being

“One thing comes clear when reading this book:  Leslie has the chops – she’s an experienced, insightful, creative guide and master practitioner who knows whereof she speaks…  It’s a great resource for anyone who wants to apply guided imagery to their own issues, struggles and questions.” —Belleruth Naparstek, author of Staying Well with Guided Imagery

“She is a moving storyteller whose deeply spiritual approach is balanced by her sense of pragmatism and humor.” —Martin L. Rossman, MD, author of Fighting Cancer from Within
