Winds Blow Uncertainty

Winds blow Uncertainty 
Cleansing aching hearts
The sun hides behind the fog
Waiting patiently to burn off

In the distant horizon ships pass by
Planes fly high 
Birds sing while vultures circle
Waiting to be fed  

Life is fragile 
Struggling to find words
Dialing the phone 
Nobody’s home 
I just called to say goodbye

The whistle blows
Tears flow back to the ocean 
The fog burns off 
And the sun glows

We return again and again
Rainbows bring hope to despair
Everlasting light 
Wind blows uncertainty 

Let’s not say Goodbye!
Until we meet again….
Farewell my friend 

This comes at a time where we struggle with our sweet dog Harry. Some of you have been so kind to share Harry’s journey with us.  He’s dependent on our every need, still eating happily and sleeping between us an night.  He has no use of his front legs now either.  I pray for miracles and work on him but the time is nearing. Some days his needs are greater than we can bear because he’s dependent on us for his every movement and it’s challenging. It’s a lot like having a newborn and trying to figure out what they need but you know they will grow up and leave the nest and fly. In this case we know we will have to say goodbye. Every time we decide it’s time to send him off to The Rainbow Bridge, he eats another meal and looks at us with those big brown eyes and we just can’t do it. We’re heading out for a hike now and pushing him in the stroller to get some fresh air.

Covid numbers are increasing here in California  with a record high of 779 deaths on Friday.

We were watching the news last night and heard Larry King, the Brooklyn-bred man who became cable TV’s most well-known talk show host, died. He was 87.

Over the course of more than five decades in radio and TV broadcasting, half of it spent hosting CNN’s “Larry King Live,” King mingled with the famous and infamous and average people who became either. We watched his shows and had no idea of his colorful life at the time but loved his great interviews.

By his count, he interviewed more than 60,000 subjects, and when his run on cable ended in 2010, he segued to the internet with “Larry King Now,” a daily talk show on Hulu from Ora TV, and became an active presence on Twitter. 

Larry’s last words were “Let’s not say Goodbye but rather, Until We Meet Again, Farwell”.

Life is short; days may seem long or fly by and it’s definitely uncertain. Pick up the phone and let someone you know you’re thinking of them, email or send a card. There is nothing like old snail mail. Love yourself and love others, life is fleeting.

Thanks so much for reading today, liking (if you do of course), commenting and or sharing.

Always love and light as you travel through your day!

❤️

  1. A beautiful post, Cindy … and oh the aches that we get from dealing with the final days of a beloved pet. For me, one of the most difficult times in life. Peace and strength to you.

    On the plus side, your words also made me smile because I encountered so many words that I’ve featured in walks – wind, sun, & horizon already posted – rainbows & fog coming this week … and to think I’ve posted what, 32 walks? You mentioned a good percentage! …. then add light & heart in the future. 🙂

      I was pleased with this as I don’t write poetry….LOL. but I do quite a bit these days. Yes, I reognize those words in your beach walk posts that are uplifting and a beautiful meditation. I love it, because it keeps you moving, meditating in light, and love! Here’s to bright days ahead! ❤️

    1. Awwww thanks for your kind wishes Ingrid. It really is and I appreciate your support. Oh I’m so glad you liked my poem!!! I had a song by dear ole Frank Sinatra but I’ve been so bad with my linking lately, I said forget it. Then I learned of 2 more friends passed last week. 😢 If I get brave I might try to add them later. I know right!!! Wonder if there are 60,000 posts or poems in your future or mine… lol… ❤️ Great day to you!

Love can never be destroyed and your Harry gave you all so much❤🐶😇

    1. Thank you sooo much Diana!!!! I’m not sure if I responded on your post today or not but first off, great interview. I really loved that you said you love poetry that is from the heart.. I only know a few rules and it’s fun to dabble in but my heart speaks and I just follow. Maybe I did write that or was about to but a meeting put me in another zone. What day is it anyway?! 🤣 Thank you so much for your care and concern! ❤️❤️❤️

  5. Such a hard decision, my friend. Loved pets are family. No doubt about it. Sometimes even closer. Or so it seems. I’ve had to make the decision a few times. And it was never easy. My thoughts are with you. Beautifully written. –Curt

  6. Oh this was so heart touching Cindy, you brought a tears to my eyes ❤️ I can just imagine how you must be dealing with Harry, may God ease out his pain and he be at peace until its time for him to leave ❤️❤️❤️ our time to go is so uncertain, nobody knows when will our call be, to leave this world. Why not live happily and be kind towards one another, for this is all what will be left behind.
    Let’s just hope and pray for everyone’s health and happiness and wish we get up someday to find Covid nowhere.
    Take care dear and stay blessed 🥰❤️❤️❤️🤗🤗🤗🤗

    1. Thanks so much Samreen. It was an aray of things that were happening and after I wrote that, I found out the 2 friends died within a day of each other so I energetically was picking something up. I was also getting a weird bug myself. It is hard and he’s not in pain, he just can’t do anything for himself so it’s a little like brail.. the blind leading the blind.. you know. I sure agree. We need to treat each otehr with love and kindness and hopefully, we will be on the other en of this soon!!! Thanks for the love! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Bless you back! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Am so proud of you all for taking care of him so well. ❤️❤️ It’s indeed difficult to take care of him as every need of him is dependent on you. 😞 I could understand of what you are going through….

    1. Oh Thank you Dear Preethes. It is sad. It’s what we do and I;m sure you would too. That is the tricky part. he’s not in pain which is the main thing and happy to be here for him but it is challenging you’re right. It’s good we have a village with our family that is so supportive. Thanks so much for your support and kind appreciation! ❤️

  8. Very nicely done! It is unsettling to see the number of deaths rise! Sounds like Harry is looking for his Rainbow Bridge! So sad to lose a great companion like that. I like the “until we meet again ending the best!”

    1. Thanks so much Dwight. I appreciate that. I know, right after I wrote this 2 more friends died that night 60 and 71. It does seem he’s getting ready but yesterday and today were great days and sustainable for us. I’m sure there’s a song like that. I like Until we meet again best too! ❤️

  10. The poem is beautiful, sorry about Harry’s struggle and the load on responsibilities, the write up.at the end is o emoonal. Life is but a fraction for those who live it, but for those who love it can feel like an eternity, we should definitely let others know how we feel.

    1. Thank you so much Kevin for such an understanding message delivered with such compassion and knowingness. It’s unusual for me to highlight a response but is so profound Life is but a fraction for those who live it, but for those who love it can feel like an eternity”, Perhaps a post?

      1. Welcome Cindy. I’m glad the message is comforting. Sure, you could do a post on it. It’s a great question to ponder on. Actually an extract from a longer quote I read a few years ago from an article by Jay, he’s a monk who teaches on personal development. Be well, and have a Blessed weekend

  11. What beautiful thoughts, Cindy. I’m sorry about Harry. We got to that point with our 19.5 year old cat, who had diabetes, and decided to put him down. It was hard, but he would have never made the move to being an inside cat 100% of the time. He had lived with us in Woodlake for his whole life. It is a very hard decision, and one that I’ve never made with a pet before, but I’ve never had one live for that long and even survive cancer surgery.
