  1. if you take everything
    you know about moving
    under this much
    weight –
    day after day
    night after night –
    cut it up and mix it well
    with tears and
    more, even more heaviness

    and if you can
    hold it together
    just long enough
    for the pain
    to dry, still
    so slowly

    you might emerge
    solid, intricate,
    and surprisingly
    lightweight, on an
    unmarked, papier-mâché
    morning, ready
    to be painted,
    even decorated
    .

  3. you might
    you might
    you might
    or
    you might not
    then
    how to reassemble

  4. what a choice—to might or destroy–nihilism?

  5. I love that “papier-mache morning”…..and I don’t know how to put those little thingies on the a and e in mache. I think it is a reassembling, going through this grief. It can’t not be. Grief has a way of re-making parts of ourselves. A wise friend once shared with me that grief is that period of time our soul and heart is searching for a way to live with a hole left by the loss of a loved one. As soon as the soul can accept that it is alright for that little hole to be there, this lifetime, that morning on the other side of grief will appear. By the time we pass from this lifetime we all have holes we live with. Each one re-makes us in some way.

    • that is beautiful, Leslie, and it’s like you read my mind – i just wrote today’s entry: the day oxidizes. thank you so much for all of your caring words – they really re-awaken me and help me to see the bigger picture.

  6. Thank-you. Your words are helping all of us understand ourselves.
    I like your new poem and am trying to imagine the photo you will post. Of course you always surprise us.
