My Unanswerable Question
My Unanswerable Question
Of Death and beyond I oft obsess
and query all who’d lend an ear
beliefs on Heav’n and saving Grace
bestowed upon our loved ones dear.
Upon my sister’s self-demise
I fretted where her soul may land,
for angry gods no doubt despise
a mortal’s death by her own hand!
Yet, would not those whose minds belied
their common sense and means to cope
be spared the judgement set aside
for those with reason, wit and hope?
Lo! Until the passing of mine own last breath,
I’ll continue to ponder the myst'ries of Death.
(a varied Shakespearean sonnet)

In Celebration of My Mother
In Celebration of My Mother
There's an incredible woman named Linda Lee
Whose life is a colourful tapestry
Of spirit and soul; of joy and tears
And experiences rolled into fifty years.
It's a beautiful thing -- the quilt of her life:
With paisley pain and stripes of strife;
Dotted with hard work, courage and strength;
Embroidered with knowledge and passion and faith.
Fringed in adventure and frayed at the ends,
It's threaded with animals, family and friends.
There are a few stains but the colours are bright
And the heart in the middle seems to shine its own light!
So when I need a hug or a gentle reminder
Of the Gift of my life, I set out to find her...
For the comfort I find is like that of no other
When I blanket myself in the love of my mother.
For my Mom

The Passing
"The Passing"
The sharp "click-tick"ing of the wall-hung clock was jumping out across the silence in my darkened bedroom and methodically poking at my brain.
Click-tick…click-tick…. I sensed myself adjusting my breathing to match its rhythm -- I'd inhale for two counts and exhale for four -- as if to disguise my presence in the room. There were no other sounds, sights or smells to distract me. No matter how hard I tried to resist its intrusive tapping, the Clock was holding me hostage to its relentless reminders of passing seconds. It seemed somehow to be desperately trying to communicate with me... and demanding a response.
My concentration could not be averted for longer than the few moments required to inwardly curse myself for my lack of control over its influence. Still, I didn't dare move to cover my ears or leap from my bed. I was paralyzed with fear, I realized, but of what? I became more frightened with the realization

Glimpse of an Angel
Glimpse of an Angel
Leaning into the doorway,
She crosses her arms
And tips her head to one side.
She looks on in wonder,
With a smile
And a chest full of pride.
There is nothing so precious,
She's certain of this,
And no greater proof of His grace
Than the peaceful perfection
And heavenly glow
She sees in her sleeping child's face.
For my children,
Taylor and Nicholas

Wolf Sketch by LilyNBlue Wolf Sketch :iconlilynblue:LilyNBlue 4 3


I'm almost incredulous at how devastated I've been in the last couple days.

On Wednesday, March 18th, I had to have my long-time companion euthanized. And I've cried a LOT since then.

I rarely cry...…

I will miss her for a long time.

((((Zod)))) No repayment, doll. Seriously. Tay wanted to do it for your BDay. And I know what a pain it is to have to deal with viral ads, and how much trouble you've had with viruses in general. You don't want to take chances with your new computer and all that... and you shouldn't have to. Just enjoy it! I would hate to see you NOT get to showcase your incredible talents here... (Okay, I'm going to stop rambling now.) :hug:

<33333333333333333 Still, thank you so much! ;__; I have come to the conclusion that dA was the source of the Antivirus 2010 virus that destroyed my old computer, and so this came as a huge relief to me. Since that last sub ran out, TWICE the stupid "HULLO! WE ARE AN ANTIVIRUS PROGRAM AND SO WE ARE GOING TO SCAN YOUR ENTIRE COMPUTER FOR YOU!" pop up has came while I was browsing dA. So... yeah. Either dA wants to kill me, or dA wants to kill my computer.

:glomp: GDHSAJKDBHSAJKBDSHAJKDSBAH *still in awe* THANK YOU AGAIN!!!!! <3333333333333
