A Kaleidoscope

lab-coated white flurries
with pursed lips, intense multi-tasking eyes
conscienciously moving between process and disease
to understand more precisely

then someone will laugh
and beneath the whiteness of the coats
a brightness of flowers is revealed,
a lei around the day

Join me in celebrating Laboratory Technologist Week!

Thanks Aurora,
