Cathy Safiran



Caduceus Serpent


within and through me
wise and ancient healer
of cells, vessels, organs

hidden nodes
steadfast attention
will cleanse

your precise
split tongue
where you desire

body surrenders
heart welcomes
being requires
your sacred healing

lunar quiescent moments
before sleep
feel secure
wrapped in your embrace



Cathy Safiran lives with her husband in Indiana’s northeast Amish country. They make and sell scrappy license plate art. She is an avid quilter, using needle and thread as meditation for piecing words into poetry. The Hummingbird Review has published her poems, and 100WordStory featured a micro story online.
