I'd like to take my grief
the way a tree
bends to the
storms that beat it. . .

To see it as a part
of life . . .
and , by accepting it,
defeat it!


  1. Gorgeous! i only wish i could write the way you do.

  2. Beautiful thoughts, Margie. To use the healing words of the ancients: "This too, will pass".

  3. woow! Beautifully written!...n hop u defeat it too!

    Take care!!

  4. Margie, I hope the grief in this isn't real. You're too sweet to have any.

  5. Grief is what lets us feel alive. To care, to bend to emotion and realize that some things are more important than possessions.

  6. wonderful, margie!
    like pat, i hope the grief is not recent.
    hugs to you!

  7. You expressed this so well, Margie. Wishing you the best, now and always.

  8. I'm sorry if you're grieving... sadly it is something very few will never know and most of us do. All we can hope and pray that G-d gives us the strength to cope.

    Grief is like another layer, another part of us that we wear, it's never beaten, it's always there; some days are better than others.

    I wish you well and hope the holidays were joyous to you and yours

    lotsa luv ann xxxxxx

  20. Hi Margie
    The tree gets uprooted.
    Sometimes pride hurts.
    its the blade of grass which bends.

    lots of love and hugs Margie

  21. Grass gets trampled
    as trees blow down
    only the rock remains steadfast.

    Did enjoy the piece though.
    Very Good.

    and yes, a true story...they were at a lack of male dancers so they roped 3 of us boyfriends into i have 6 college credits in dance and danced in the nutcracker on the college stage with my wife...smiles.


Each day comes
bearing its own gifts ...
Untie the ribbons.
