    Holes


    round so often,
    deep or shallow
    heart's receptacle
    of tears

    carved by dying;
    met by melding
    passing spectacle
    of fears

    here - imagined
    long-held sorrows
    suffered; granite stone
    head jeers

    one, or many,
    pock my being.
    yours, life's cruelest dig
    ​​in years.

    My beloved Mother was laid to rest a few days ago. This is hard.

    Rhymist, you've made a starkly beautiful poem from life's cruel dig. Your mother raised a gifted daughter.

      Thank you Alex. The range of emotion encompasses a grand scale in the wake of the death of a loved one - particularly a beloved mother.

    What silences
    bereavement holds.
    What memories
    a life enfolds.

    My condolences, on the passing of your mother.

    From start to finish, this is my favourite poem of yours!

    Lyrical, emotive, beautiful.

      Thank you Dwayne. The sorrow/joy package of the death of a loved one makes many things possible.

    My most heart felt sympathy, may Jesus heal your heart.

    If I might, this small story: My father died a few years back the day before Easter, he was not a religious man. A beautiful Easter lily was send to the funeral home. I was told it wouldn’t survive our harsh winters and wouldn’t come back if I planted it. Well it came back every year and always seems to bloom ever year the day my father died. Sadly it didn’t come back this year, Maybe dad finally found his way home. God bless you as only time seems to ease the pain.

      Thank you divot. That is a beautiful story. Yes, this is a journey many have made - and one I'm sure most would rather never have to take. But there are many wonderful memories from which to draw - and blessed assurance that she is beyond pain now.

    Paula, your mother raised a beautiful daughter and her spirit lives on in your exquisitely chiseled poetry. As I have said many times before, you are Grace in the World made manifest.
    All who come in contact with you are well blessed.
