My beloved Mother, Doris Elizabeth, goes in for surgery tomorrow. At 94 years, things could go either way... She looks so fragile, but her courage and strength of character are
fully intact!


 

 

 

~Poised~

 

Beloved Mother

Edge of earthy life beckons thee

How your Spirit glows

 

Calmly poised with wings spread wide

Illumined Soul to guide thy flight

Embrace that vast unknowable manifest

With thy state of Grace

 

My heart falters so!

Bracing for your final flight

Joined evermore with that elusive Other

 

Oh precious Mother of mine

Do guide those you leave behind

For uncertain still are our steps

In this world of foolish madness

 

Yes lofty realms  beckon from beyond

Calmly poised are thee with wings spread wide

Readied for that final flight

 

Peace be with you evermore

Beloved Mother of mine...

What a glowing sense of the resiliance and perfection of the soul's readiness for flight and journey, Carolyn. I am truly moved by the emotion and picture you paint. May you both be mutually held in this indefinable bond and state of grace and strength as life takes its onward course to the beat of these outstretched and steadied wings... xx
