grieving -

I receive a card today from a woman who has lost her son because of the war in Iraq.  She is trying to focus on the "love and humor and warmth" that was so much a part of her son.  Again, I cannot imagine her grief, though I spoke of imagining earlier.  This is beyond imagining, and perhaps, that is why it is so hard to know how to meet each mother in how she chooses to deal with her grief.

My heart goes out to Cindy Sheehan and all the loss of this world.  I know there are lessons in it, and the pain seems almost to defeat, but, there is the catch, almost, and that is where we meet.  

My thoughts for today -

   

            presence

 
        awareness rumbles and trembles,
                roots and fondles,
    penetrates one stone, and then, the next,
        until all stones are help in a grasp
                    liquid with longing,
                            dissolving,
                                what leans
                                    forward
                                and back -
