Today is the ninth anniversary of Marianne’s death. This past week I have begun a blog telling the story of our journey together through poems. I had a “prepared” poem to post today that has a special significance but yet somehow it did not quite seem to fit. Then a friend sent me a message affirming another poem, and I knew to share it — and the original one too, and a third one as well! Here is the key that unlocked the trio of anniversary poems.
The Other Realm My loved one is a flower too In another realm I cannot see But my heart tells me it is there I have the same hopes for her That she has for me I pray the same prayers I yearn for the same opening For the eternal connection of our hearts For the full flowering of our love.
