... so let them fall. ....

Image (c) 2007, Karla Dorman

I don't want to mourn, to let
the tears slide down my face
in silvery lines of sadness...
someone told me that tears

water the blooms of memory,
of good times spent together,
of laughter, shared --- so let
them fall.  Want to walk out

early some morning and see
the garden of love you planted
just for me --- it's going to be
a big one, can see that now.

(c) 2008, Karla Dorman (6/16)

Karla grief is a normal process of life, it is hard, but if you have the support of those you love, which I know you do, it makes it more barable, if you need a shoulder let me know, I am here for you my friend
God Bless

I love the hibiscus picture, Karla. I once had a six foot tall hibiscus but our lawn crew cut it to the ground. Flowers, so often, hold memories of loved ones lost. For me, the flower of choice is the yellow rose; my Great-Grandmother loved them.

My thoughts and prayers continue to be with you and Karen.
Thanks for sharing this heartfelt poem. Your parents would both be proud.

StormSpinner seeds of emotion planted from the recent loss of a father who planted the seeds of twin daughters and others so long ago...the growth of your poetry thrives on love, Karla, here, there, and well you and Karen Lynn...

Reviewed by Lois Christensen 6/16/2008
Your garden of love is not ready for you yet at this time. It is so good though you can express these feelings while still grieving for your Daddy. I can relate to this too cause still wishing to go home to Tom after 9 months almost. We will get over it and time will heal but right now I am still with you in your grief too. Many of your thoughts are still my thouhgts. Friend.
