About ladyliterati

I'm a little bit of this...and a whole lot of that.. Actually, I'm an inspiring poet with a dream. "When I'm not writing, a poem is dancing through my head, awating to glide across the page". I'm a loner and I've learned to like it that way - less complicated when you have only yourself to blame or praise :-) ~~ LL

~ Pieces of You, of Me

~ Pieces of You, of, Me
There is no time limit to grief

Just shock, horror, disbelief

And “well doers” seek a smile

Insisting grief is but a little while
But this cannot possibly be true;

The loss so great, left? Pieces of me, of you

Shattered, scattered pieces, all so consuming

And Time is no friend, but foe, amongst the dead, the living
So let the mourning mourn, long as they must

They’ve been caught in reality of “Ashes to ashes, Dust to dust”

And Life never ore to be the same

Yet, the mourners good memories shall sustain
Death is so finale.

Departures and Grief

Exceptional understanding of loss and the void left in ones life “when Death steps in”. Reblogged on The Works of A. L. O’Prunty

Eadar Doodles + Cheese

I’ve been preoccupied with death today. More accurately with grief.

A colleague found out on Monday that her sister had died. Based on what they know so far, she died in her sleep. The sister had not suffered with a long-time illness. She was healthy in all appearances. Strong, happy, and healthy is how my colleague described her. Happy. This adjective is the least meaningful in a diagnosis, but it is still so important to the people that love her. “She was happy, how could she die?” or “At least she had a happy life.”

To get that call — someone you love has died. Not a death you were expecting. Not an elder come sweetly to the end of their winter. Not the afflicted finally at peace. She was strong, happy and healthy. And now she is gone.

But you are still here — waiting your turn or running…

Before, after, her demise

The wheat
The barley
The rye
Nuts, berries, Nature does supply
A gift to each hearth and home:
Honey sweet drips from the comb.

~ Being Human


“Strive as we might, our humanity keeps us from perfection -that great illusion – And it is our humanity that tortures our thoughts when a “mistake” has been made. A mistake is paid for once, yet, our humanity guilts us, shames us, ’til we bankrupt our souls, still, believing we can obtain the unattainable…the perfect”… O’Prunty 2/13/17

~ Death Holds No Victory Here…

~ Death Has No Victory
We are all a composite

Of that which came before

The good, the bad, 

Sadness, happiness, galore
The efforts of our ancestors 

Still cling within our bones

Tis why we have no answeres

When foreign thought induces groans
And what of the songs 

Our lips happily sing

Though not in native tongue

To young ones sleeps it brings
And eyes of such depth

Tell more then what is seen

Bits and pieces of our ancestors 

Look back in glistened beam
Think not when dead, buried

They are forever gone

Look upon your family’s ways

Their presence still lives on
