An Open Window

Legend tells that when a person

dies a window must be opened

to release the soul

 

I have no one to open

my window

Or even know where

I might be when a

window needs opening

to leave that instruction

 

Smiling …

I know the soul above

has found peace

GOODBYE

Goodbye

“Goodbye,” she said

It has been – interesting

But …

The time has come

Leaving is difficult

Death is permanent

I  must go …

To find myself …

Staying will only lead to

Death …

Maybe mine …

Perhaps yours…

Death is not

My style

Not my future

The choice made

“Goodbye,” she said

Leaving to Live …

The Not So Silent Storm

The Not So Silent Storm

Another attack …

More and more senseless death

of innocent people

People enjoying a holiday

People not suspecting

the horror to come

 

I don’t understand …

None of us understand

why the world is

screaming in death

and destruction

Can we survive this

war between religions

 

No wonder Jesus wept …

He knew what was to come …

The Closet

The Closet

The one thing I keep avoiding

The one room that I cannot

cross the threshold and do

what must be done

 

I have gone through drawers

and cabinets that held her

scarves, personal items, jewelry,

and other random bit of a

person’s life

But…

I cannot bring myself to

enter her closet

The last of what made her

alive to me

The collection of eclectic

dresses, skirts, tops and blouses,

jeans, dress pants, sweat pants,

shoes from sandals to dress

 

Once these items are weeded

through and given to a place

that provide continued use

of these items …

She will be really…

completely…

forever…

gone

 

Her essence…

Her scent… (White Shoulders)

Her quirky sense of style

that always worked for her

All will be gone

And…

So will she …

Forever …

Writing Outside the Lines – Prompt 15

This week has seen several rainy days. Rain creates many different feelings, emotions, reactions for each of us. Use the picture to write your response to this week’s prompt.

 

Crying …

The world is at a loss

Too much hatred

Too much senseless death

Too much destruction

of the …

Mind…

Body…

Soul…

 

As I cry, so does

the World with me

Shedding raindrops

like tears of pain…

Tears attempting

to wash away all

the death

the destruction

looking for

the sun to

light the way

to compassion…

to peace…

to caring…

to humanity…

 

If only a few tears

a few raindrops

could change the

hatred of the world

and lead us as

humans to find

our way to

universal peace …

If I Could Only Say …

In response to Writing Outside the Lines challenge Prompt 7 for the week of September 20, 2015:

envelope-typewriter-words-favim-com-404175_large
In our lives there are people, sometimes several, that we have things we want to talk to them about, something to tell them, something to share – good or bad, but the timing just is never right and those things go unsaid. Those things you could never tell go with you to the grave or at least are lost to the person you needed to tell when they go to theirs.

If I Could Only Say …

There are so many words

in my heart

in my mind

in my soul

that need to be said

that need to be shared

that need to be discussed

 

Yet…

Fear is keeping them to

myself … at least for now

Perhaps I will write them

all down and put them

in an envelope addressed

to you …

One that will be found by

some random individual

going through the detritus

of my sad life when I am

no more than dust on

a forgotten mantel

 

Maybe it will be mailed

perhaps it will be tossed

with all the other bits

and pieces collected for

years that no longer

have significance to

anyone …

living or dead

 

There is no guarantee

if mailed it will find

you …

Perhaps you have gone

ahead to pave the way

in the Universe for my

arrival …

Maybe then …

we will reconnect and

I can tell you

my thoughts…

my fears…

what all I held back

for years that needed

to be said…

And…

We will both laugh

because in the end

it really didn’t matter…

Ashes to Ashes

Leave a comment

Ashes to Ashes

After I’m gone

It will no longer

matter…

 

After my ashes

have been spread…

Spread to the

four winds

and…

 

Nothing is left

of me but an

empty urn…

Will you think of me?
