For Chris – The Rock

I have a rock I keep upon my window ledge that is my connection to you
They were handed out at your funeral so we had something to hang onto
It sits in sunshine almost every day
I pray your pain has left and gone away
Young children should never die so young
Your life had just begun
You are and always will be Garth’s best friend
For the rest of eternity
We talk about you after all these years
Remembering your courage, showing no fear
Until we meet again one day

 

You are in our hearts Chris Jackson

Spring and Sunshine



Spring uplifts my depression

The sun shines and awakens something inside me

New life springing up, trees budding, warmth beating down on the earth

Dark clouds no longer hang over my head

Rejuvenated and feeling like a brand new person

Sleep now comes easy

Hopelessness has turned into a promising future

Gloomy days are now filled with cheerfulness

Unimaginable pain has been uplifted

Despondent now hopeful

Seasonal affective disorder can be so debilitating

But once it has lifted life will return to normal

Never lose hope
Never give up
Never give in

Spring shall return

Just as sunshine does 


Join a great bunch of writers over at Carrot Ranch each week who write a 99 word (no more, no less) flash fiction from the prompts that +Charli Mills gives us. This week the prompt is to write a story about a snapshot of spring. 

This poem was written today in recollection of how I was feeling a year ago. 

The End Is Near – Flash Fiction

Thirsting for water
Not a cloud anywhere seen
Everything is dead
Trees are screaming out
Our leaves are all on the ground
Somehow please save us
Once what was luscious
Voluminous green pastures
Has now turned to dust
Spring arrived with hope
Not a flower to be seen
Dispiritedness
Oceans are depleting
Lakes and rivers are hollow
Ponds now memories
Scorching sun daily
Humans are seeking shelter
Underneath the ground
Not one animal
Can endure these elements
Soon there will be none
Annihilation time
Sorrowfully will soon show up
Such a travesty
Depression darkness
Gasping for relief to come
