Grief hovers

  •  

     

    Grief hovers over my shoulder,

    nudges sore at the back of my eyes.

    chokes my throat, hollows my chest,

    robs me of my stomach.

    What fruit can I offer to guru Earth?

    O you teacher who showed me how to love,

    the fragrant flowers for your grave have died.

    Sandlewood and myrrh have turned to ashes.

    What candle will burn to light this darkness,

    this blight through all the extinctions to come?

    I think of striking a flame, then recall

    it was the smoke that started the dying.

    I am rife
    With opportunity and life
    Your poem reminds me of a time 
    when I was so sad, I could not rhyme

    I want to walk into the light
    not look for reasons to cry or fight
    the good fight that is deep within
    The bad I will take on the chin

    If I can just mimic or glance 
    at someone brave who shows a chance
    to look beyond the pain and fear

    and know the SOURCE of LOVE is HERE.

    Be Well and thank you for the reminder
