On Death
Kahlil Gibran

You would know the secret of death.
But how shall you find it unless you seek it in the heart of life?
The owl whose night-bound eyes are blind unto the day cannot unveil the mystery of light.
If you would indeed behold the spirit of death, open your heart wide unto the body of life.
For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one.


In the depth of your hopes and desires lies your silent knowledge of the beyond;
And like seeds dreaming beneath the snow your heart dreams of spring.
Trust the dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.
Your fear of death is but the trembling of the shepherd when he stands before the king whose hand is to be laid upon him in honour.
Is the shepherd not joyful beneath his trembling, that he shall wear the mark of the king?
Yet is he not more mindful of his trembling?


For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun?
And what is it to cease breathing, but to free the breath from its restless tides, that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered?


Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.
And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.
And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.

Once upon a time
a little boy needed me
and I needed him.

...from Gibran's excerpt post #11, really stands out to me, the whole thing is a masterpiece, and I like the paragraph above it about the shepherd trembling before the King, too. His writings are just so beautiful and touch my soul so completely.

I wanted beautydylan's poem to be included here.

I wrote this one for Silvergirl and her son, as yet it doesn't have a title.

As the seasons come and go,
I look back on the past.
Thinking how quickly time has flown;
Wondering where it's gone.

I think back on the past events;
Look at your photo again.
I still miss you and want to ask
Where are you now?

I remember all the fun times we had.
I shared your laughter and your pain,
Now there's nothing left
Except your photo on the wall.

I was just reading a Readers Digest I filched from my doctor's office a month or so ago (juust kidding) and found a couple that I wanted to share here, because the one thing, the one activity Sean and I enjoyed almost more than anything (besides his favorite TV shows and video games) was a good joke / a good laugh.

Everyone in our neck of the woods knows that trailer parks and tornadoes are not a good mix. So my brother-in-law wasn't the least bit surprised when the lead story on our local news was about a tornado wiping out a mobile home factory.

"Look at that," he said. "Got them in the larval stage."

It's been a long time since I've posted anything about my son. I guess partly because I think people get tired of hearing about it, not reflecting badly just it's old news, and partly because some of the stuff is morbid and unpleasant and sad. I may be sort of stuck in a panic type mode, one where I'm going through a non-acceptance phase. Maybe I can say something now on here because (I HOPE) I'm coming out of that phase. I've been sleeping a lot more, so not like me. When I make up my shopping list and to-do list, I don't get on the stick like I used to. I ask myself, gee, do I really need that? I used to see these things on my lists with such purpose! Now I just laugh. I can live another day without X or doing X. wow. So different. I find myself wanting to mostly hide away from the world a lot. Sigh. Maybe just another phase.

Perhaps they are not stars,
but rather openings in heaven
where the love of our lost ones
pours through and shines down
upon us to let us know
they are happy~*
