Poem – Love, Loss, Carry On

Love, Loss, Carry On   flighting bites silly sounds do delight frightful flights someone please dim the lights bug splattered windshield and too much glare straining to see what was really there distorted synaptic configurations convoluted emotions swirl I saw her as a young girl Tortured, pulled, torn, abused a rag doll stretched on a…

Poem – Nineteen Months

Yesterday was a year and seven months… and between memories and emotions somehow came these words When smiles and gentle words of kindness Feel like embraces longed for When hugs and affectionate touch Melt stiffened scars aged in time When the scars have softened And the inner harsh voices have hushed A scarred heart beats…

No Worry, No Hurry

I got the mail from the mailbox Then noticed some trash across the street. I checked both ways and crossed, To retrieve the tiny cinnamon whiskey bottle someone had tossed. I came back across and threw the trash in my can, I got back in my car and then, As I started out my driveway…

Poem – Chemo At The End

This came out of both a conversation, and remembering. Rather than seeing this decision as a giving in, if it can be reframed in such a way that the person is not feeling defeat, but somehow empowered, then the time remaining is seen with a different set of eyes. It is not easy to do.…

Song – Anniversary Without – Lyrics

  What do you want someone to say to you, what do I want someone to say to me, what do I say to someone, who spouse has died, and their anniversary date arrives? Do I say something to them, or do I ignore it like the pink elephant in the room? Lots of times…
