Prayers most welcome, 12 days now of grueling headaches, forgetfulness, loss of thought process, burned out in all effort to carry on. I just need it all to end.
J. Allen 1/14/06

Estuaries Of Silence


Estuaries of silent remembrance

 Converge softly upon a vast and lonely sea.

Lifetimes of consequence are emptied

 unknown amongst a gathering of reeds.

Virtuous condemnation comes swift now without any pain,

 as shallow currents pull unto the sweet surrender of yesterdays game.

The sun, the sea, and the brilliant winter’s sky,

 are all now partakers in the solemn moment of souls sacrifice.

For slowly the salt and sand to this body, this mind do claim,

as is unto this trepidation of death without commemoration of name.

Deep, dark, and cold is this final place,

cast now upon the silt of forgotten time,

there to forever remain…

without face.






            Even when

           Next to

I feel the tiredness of life's trials and tribulations in this piece. It is such a blessing from God to have this orm of release to share with others all around the world. The feedback we get back helps us to go on slowly but surely you know. God bless.

get thee to a doctor! or you won't be able to carry on at all and your poem may indeed be a self-fulfilling prophecy ...

I'm so sorry to learn about your headaches. Hope it will end very soon. As Molly had suggested, have you gone to see the doctor yet? I will keep you in my prayer.

Hope you'll get well very soon!

powerful read, prayers, and hope the headaches are soon gone. Have you seen a doctor?

Got to be honest, I did not read the poem, my first thought was to come down here and leave you a message...go to a doctor, see a shrink, take more time off, but do something, headaches don't last for 12 days without a reason...! If Leah needs help getting you moving, i will be glad to come down there out of the frozen white north and kick your ass into gear...Rufuz agree's...ED
