Change of Season

The weather is beautiful
There is no care in the world
As I cross the Hudson Bridge
I gaze at the serene looking waves
Slowly caressing the surface
Of the motionless river

The day appears to be normal
Just like any other
Or so I thought

But like unpredictable weather
My life immediately and abruptly
Changed
As I was no longer viewing nature's beauty
But waking up in a hospital room
With tubes dangling from my nostrils
Like a fish snared by a fisherman.

Only a few days later
I was happy—in my sadness
To realize how lucky I was to survive
The hook of a massive stroke.
