"Marion Sadler's very personal glimpse at the darker aspects of the life
cycle will touch the reader, perhaps even sound an alarm, evoking a sense of
urgency toward living life to the fullest while we have it."
Can a Mother Die of a Broken Heart? (Book) - 2/7/2003 3:54:08 PM
"I read the book again...again....with tears, confimation, fears, remembrances.
This is not a book I wanted to read. But it is also a book I could not put down, unlike most poetry books which one can read, enjoy, absorb, and return to at will and certainly when convenient. No, this book seduces the reader into a realm not known by all, and feared by most. It is best appreciated by those who have lost a family member before his/her time in the temporal world.
Through the pen and tears of this mother, we forge a priceless relationship in anonymity, yet as connected as a bridge built of redwood tree. Marion shares out loud the prayers and innermost thoughts of mothers, and fathers, everywhere when tragedy strikes. We hear and we also "know" from our own experiences the raw pain of death, the plea of a mother's heart, the struggle to find meaning, answers, and to stop the pain...or maybe stop completely. We find possibilities, comfort, familiarity from the author's shared introspections over life's trials and death's tribulations.
And somewhere through the tears, loss moves toward acceptance; pain moves into release; sorrow is backwashed with love, and turmoil metastasizes into freedom.
I do not want to read these poems again. I do not want to know the pain. But I will....do both. And I will cry and I will find life and healing... at least for my soul."

An excellent collection of poems. No person, reading this book can remain dry-eyed. It speaks of agony that seems more than anyone can bear, yet it was born and became a lasting tribute to a much loved son.

You might want to fix Good Bood up there. It's an interesting poem, and tells a striking story.

Very nice. Very nice indeed. Very true as well.

Isn't it funny how we humans, who ALL share the same hopes and aspirations, joys and sorrows, elations and disappointments, must continously waste so much energy and blood trying to force others to do what we think they should do... and isn't it funny how much we all use religious beliefs to justify that cause...? But, in the end, only the little stones survive as mute testament to our blood-red hubris...
Nicely put, Marion... nicely put...

This is curiously melancholic and introspective, but SO true. I often find myself buying flowers, or chocolates (those real expensive ones which flow in one's mouth) and just kinda leave 'em lying around, sometimes with a bit of verse, almost incidentally... then I hide, watch, and enjoy the resultant smiles...!
How too often it is, that we fail in our duty (yes, duty!) to do sundry little things to let others know we really appreciate that they are always there for us...

Sweet, short, and to-the-point! I would have screwed it up by making it twice (or thrice) as long. Nice!

This was a very good piece...
Life is a Candle (Poetry) - 9/29/2003 7:02:58 AM
Short...and well written to the point, Marion. I have buried two children, so I understand completely the loss of your son. Interestingly, your poem recalls an Old Testament scripture: "This life is but a shadow that disappears when the light comes." Ah, how very temporary is this life: would that the world could comprehend its nature and purpose.
Keep up the good writing and, when you have time, check out my latest contribution to A/D: "The Ice Princess."
