If Love is a Rose. Then Death is a Morning Glory...

I hate that "Forever" expression.

I always thought love was forever, as was a loved-one.

Then the realities and brutalites of life taught me differnt.

I realized that a "Love Loss' was like a flower of sorts.

The love that we shared when they were with us, made our pedals bright, as if we opened to the morning sun and basked in it's love-light.

But when that sun sets, and our love-light is gone, we close those pedals and shut ourselves out from the world, and all that surrounds us, and live in darkness, an empty dawn.

Until finaly, one day, you realize you are needed, and wanted by the many loved ones that remain, and surround you as a clinging vine supports, and never lets go.

Memories of the ones lost, flood in, bad and good, they sustain you, and can even bring in a bit of happiness.

A small ray of light sneaks in, filling the emptiness, until finaly that sun rises, the warmth overwhelms us, and we slowly begin to open. To once again bask in the love of those that surround and support us.

Never forgetting the ones we loved, and lost, but rather we remember.

And we cry, we smile, we laugh.

And then, we bloom.

@T.A. Dieringer This poem reminds us that with life comes death, with love comes pain, and with victories comes loss - in other words saying that the truth is we don't get one without the other (good, bad). And reality definitely has a way of awakening us all to this some way or another. Loss is one of the greatest happenings to do this. Grief tells us many days we can’t go on, but in your words;


“A small ray of light sneaks in, filling the emptiness, until finaly that sun rises, the warmth overwhelms us, and we slowly begin to open. To once again bask in the love of those that surround and support us.

Never forgetting the ones we loved, and lost, but rather we remember.

And we cry, we smile, we laugh.

And then, we bloom.”

Thank you. I have lost all of my brothers, my mother and father to cancer. Now my wife of 38 years. Now in the hospital with a chest tube, fighting for her life. Stage 4 cancer is winning.. You read it quite well. Thank you again.

  • We’ve entered a foggy time Where only the insane are truly free Politicians thrive With agendas where their brains should be. Where “dialogue” is shouted curses Wielded like dull-edged swords And our defense against this loud banality Our faces sunken into phones, terminally bored. We no longer slouch towards Bethlehem But think its existence is just fake news. The truth is no longer a solid thing But a clay molded with our views. I’ll not try to do what Didion did, I’ve neither the competence nor the need To walk around in different shoes In glasses smoked with weed. I’ll just erode in peace here dark While the world in every direction implodes to dust. The red of it not iron-based – Eternal quiet the only end to our distrust.
  • Etréstles asks oblation to the unfortunate of the World .. he asks to give his offering House that is not his house, to synchronize your departure to be in the company of Solitude, He does not have his sacred Cemetery before leaving for Nineveh ... He has disappointed himself of the Archpriest of Ayia Lavra for his strong telluric pains in his marble abdomen ... The holy oil that furrowed his forehead, furrowed his soul he has not recognized himself when his own umbilical nap has flourished a wafer of the Messiah who has traveled alongside him by the pavilions of Messolonghi in clarions rubies .. My father Staktos; come, I have not yet received the indulgence of abandoning what is not abandoned, I need to hear your voice from my sixth reincarnation playing on the roads of the oracles that illuminate the world, which is yours and the Messiah Choir on the Magdala heavens . Father I have not yet gone, and so many lives I have lived to see your distant face on grass barley resembling your breaths of late sunny spring celestial sermon sermons. But this time I want to cheer you beyond the imagination of eclectic anemia, with the aching pain descending through my impure heart. Nothing torments me more than to move away from the hells that do not know that I run through the prairies towards you without getting tired, imagining that I will fall into the neglect of your forgetfulness. I quickly lose my Laud from my right arm as a short-handed little fish, to commit the indiscretion of anticipating me to worship you with my dislocated left arm that carries the Harp from Lethe confiscated from Euterpe. Harmony that ignores Dinora in the false forests of Messolonghi in flames. You are my cobble who pierces the cries of my crucified hands, timbers of lymph incense next to the sweetness of your words that grew green in my dreams. Challenge with this interloquy of your incandescent soul, this is how The Last Temptation of Etrestles begins with its bleeding fingers, in the inflexible forgiveness of praising all those who want to dance with the mothers of the Shadows; that Staktos is his father, before reviving him and resuscitating him in his exodus to Nineveh, land hunched over by the Host, tortuous and artificial light shone from the recklessness of him who will make him sleep through the desert of life in farewell fantasies. Winds are felt singing whistles of hydrogen sulphide rocking from the edge of the cliff of the cloud, to fall on the shoulders of the timid death, False Blood, clumsy blood to wash my feet on Virgo and Jupiter in the sand. . Father, in purgatory, make the sounds of the new dawn without any detail or gesture of repentance. Thus Etrestles receives the Eucharistic host offering in his holy mouth and runs down the corridors of the great mysteries of the Nothing of good spirit of all Mantle. To be continue…
  • Thy will be done Dear God shine your light on me rain down my almighty I got no chair to sit nor a place to think safe me from despair and give me air heal my valuable soul and wipe away my tear and no longer live in my fear show my path to love help me fly like a dove help me be who am I to be I am an Earth Angel my almighty and you are my creator greater, better, like a mirror my light, my only saviour Dear God I need to wake up shake up, and never look back I am on a mission waking from hibernation creating, living and loving this is my destination Dear God Help me please grow and forgive others for I now know my real true feathers I am an Earth Angel and we are one Dear God Thy will be done
