318jbgwp71L._AA160_My son, who is a Drama Teacher in India shared this poem with me via Skype recently.  It stopped me in my tracks!  I love it and thought I would share with my fellow bloggers, artists, speakers who are working to make healthcare safer, kinder, and more cost-effective.  It is from the book, “Dropping the Bow:  Poems from Ancient India”.  Let me know if you like it.

I Write Not for My Critics

Critics scoff

at my work

and declare their contempt–

no doubt they’ve got their own little wisdom.

I write nothing for them.

But because time is endless and our planet

vast, I write these

poems for a person

who will one day be born

with my sort of heart.

– Bhavabhuti
