Unique Times

Where I share my jewels of wisdom of life

I’m thrilled to share my poem The Great Divide published on MastecadoresUsa thanks to Gabriela Maria Milton for her dedication to poets and writers along with her team. I’m truly grateful and appreciative not only to them but to all of you for your continued support of my work and theirs.

The hole in my heart grows exponentially within my avalanche of mind.

One by one
eroding the smallest fraction recognizable
of myself.

Slipping into the abyss,
losing traction at record speed,
my life flashes before me.

Everything I once knew has vanished,
and I’ve lost my cognizance of mind.

All that’s left is an empty shell
which is the best place to start.

I look to the left, right, up then down and
choose to sit in the bitter cold nipping at my nose.

I become one with the unbearable reality,
there is nothing to hold on to anymore.

I sit until I’m frozen and my hair becomes icicles.
My teeth chatter and I surrender to the arctic sea………

I would be honored if you would go here to read the rest of my poem and if time permits give a like in both places to support our literary community.

Thanks truly and may our divides be fewer than they are wide for our future generations!

Blessings of Love,
