Whatever you can do will help. Especially prayer!

Wandering in the wild

We found bones

Holy bones of an ancient

Crone with spirit of a child

~~

Investigating, realizing recognizing

From the scents and touch

Knowing who she was

Honoring her in our remembering

~~

We wept and kept the children

From the fallen hero’s grave

Told her story with grief

Without a word spoken

~~

We are alive, sentient part of creation

With deep feelings and tender love

Experiencing pain and loss profoundly

You are murdering us for ornamentation?

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
