Song Of The Stone Healer

and I will make you
whole again
restored
to what you
once were
standing tall
for what you hold
deep inside
silent sentinel
for those who 
sleep
steadfast reminder
for those who have
loved
a herald
for those who
search
and I will make you
whole again
it is what I do
it is all I can

  2. I think the spirits appreciate being remembered. It's the best we can do. And you can do it in poetry, too. Nice.

  9. You are a true poetess! I really wish you had an "about" page - I would really like to know more about you. And no, I am not the stalker type.

  10. What a kind-hearted, thoughtful poem of respect. This makes me think of all those unsung people who take time every day to notice, and then do what needs to be done. Whether it is picking up litter on their neighborhood street, spending time with a homeless person and listening without judgment, paying for a stranger's groceries when she forgot her purse or giving a movie ticket to a caregiver and sitting in for them, so they can have the night off... This is the quality and mindset of your poem. Lovely piece.

  12. This is so beautiful, Rene. It reminds me of a Psalm my grandmother used to sing. I had to read it twice.

  14. "A herald for those who search."
    How true as one who does genealogy that is such an important job. Great poem. Thanks for stopping by.
