A Poem by Bonetta Spratley
I was diagnosed in 1990. In 1994, I went on a retreat (Transformation 105) through Transformation Retreats, Inc. (Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, Richmond, VA.) for those living with HIV/AIDS. We all were challenged to write poems. Several years later I was contacted and asked if I would allow my poem to be published in a book of personal reflections, thoughts and writings by those that have been infected or affected by this disease. The name of the book is Transformations.
