A Friend is Sick

he’s in pain not dying but in pain

unhappy doesn’t want to leave his house

not sure where to go  Mayo Clinic Cleveland Clinic

he talks I listen am never sure what to say besides

I Am Here I Am Here yesterday I remembered what  Letty

said  she offered a sick friend a coffee maker

my  friend loves coffee makers so yesterday I said

Can I Send You a Coffee Maker and he said yes.

Esther Cohen
Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.


  1. One of my parishioners was at death’s door until he won a Mercedes. It wasn’t a coffee pot. But it certainly turned his corner.
