Poetry Thursday


This week has been spent in the company of the painful emotions involved in parting, closures and endings. I know there are several of you working with and surmounting the same types of feelings. I ame across this poem today and it just felt like a reflection of the week so I am sharing it here.

I am sending blessings out to all of you dealing with loss of any kind, separations from those we love, and all the pain that comes with those life experience. We are not alone.

"My life closed twice before its closure"
Emily Dickinson

My life closed twice before its close-
It yet remains to see
If Immortality unveil
A third event to me

So huge, so hopeless to conceive
As these that twice befell.
Parting is all we know of heaven,
And all we need of hell.

*Note: I forgot to check the Poetry Thursday prompt before I posted this. Oops!! As I said to Lynn, what a downer I am compared to all this life-affirming sexual poetry!! Ce la vie.
