comfort and hope are a process…

Mercury glass Comfort and Hope

“grief is a house
where the chairs
have forgotten how to hold us
the mirrors how to reflect us
the walls how to contain us

grief is a house that disappears
each time someone knocks at the door
or rings the bell
a house that blows into the air
at the slightest gust
that buries itself deep in the ground
while everyone is sleeping

grief is a house where no one can protect you
where the younger sister
will grow older than the older one
where the doors
no longer let you in
or out”  ~Jandy Nelson, The Sky is Everywhere

Peace Love and Light dear ones…

  6. Oh Patty! I’m just now getting my tea post ready and saw yours. What a wonderful, thought provoking way to reflect on this past week. You are a blessing, especially to those who may still be suffering from Friday’s tragic event. Unfortunately, my tea post will be less beautiful and more controversial.

  7. Beautiful words … And I’m certain it is the voice of experience who has penned them. As you are too. I thought of you over the weekend and knew your heart was broken afresh. Such loss is never regained. Sigh.
