    Thanks for inspiring video clip, Sophie! I wrote this a year or two ago, it’s in my “Here is a beginning” book of poems:

    The saddest thing

    I might have passed
    without knowing
    over the cancer-curved horizon
    ignorant of who I am

    that would have been the saddest thing

    within this damaged shell
    open to life, love, loss
    grows something priceless
    that pearl
    is me
