A Fieldtrip to Heaven

I couldn\'t help relate your words to the philosophy of Baruch Spinoza\'s
distilled interpretation of (A/The - God/Nature), to quote:
*Spinoza meant God was Natura naturans not Natura naturata, that is, \"a dynamic nature in action, growing and changing, not a passive or static thing.\"..
( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spinozism )
such an intriguing read!
well defined and thought-out arguments
for justifying your chosen belief system

It may well be a fantasy Ed, but in our lives we have moved a long way into the light and the reality is as good as the fantasy.

What Love Can Do
L. B. Mek said:

loyalty, truly is a virtue..
accessibly worded feelings of loss, that readers can relate to easily
I agree there is no such thing as time constraints for dealing with the pain that comes with loss,
but similarly I doubt our loved one\'s will want us to remain suffering forever..
an emotive read, thanks for sharing

What Love Can Do

I totally agree with your words dd, my wife passed away 15 months ago but she is still with me so I can understand your feelings.

I Forgive You, My Lord
Goldfinch60 said:

I used to follow organised religion until my wife was taken by dementia, she had been singing a praying to the christian god all her long life but it did nothing for her at her end. I have now dismissed all organise religion but believe that there is a god in my life and that god is mine and will be waiting for me.

May your god go with you.

I Forgive You, My Lord
Doggerel Dave said:

To utilise the god fable as a hook upon which to hang a savage piece of social commentary is, for me, a nice poetic conceit.
Good one, both content and form.

I Forgive You, My Lord
dusk arising said:

Your words here are those of someone coming to the realisation that the version of god we were all taught about from a young age is a sick fabrication of lies. Don\'t misunderstand me, I am no atheist, no anti god. But whatever god is, he/she/it ain\'t that thing in the bible.
Plenty here reject that old tradition. We are in a new spiritual age.

I Forgive You, My Lord

I admit I go along with \'blind faith\' at times.
Yet we are the creatures (created beings), and He is the Creator.
One said: \'When I see God, I will give Him a good talking-to\' - but we won\'t. We will bow before Him, or else we may be consumed by the light of His presence.

Up on my Roof

That balance in life is so important, I believe I am in that place where I am happy with what I have got, it is an important place to find in one’s life.

Well written Ed, but reading that last line I wonder if that is true all the time. I guess it depends on what success and what sacrifice.

Cruising on the Red Line
Doggerel Dave said:

Within My memory are lodged several such missed opportunities. Each time I asked myself \'what have I got to loose?\' Still no move. aaah!
You\'ve been upfront about utilizing poetry as therapy; I believe quite a few contributors do that here - something I should be more mindful of.

Cruising on the Red Line

Nicely done, Ed! Your writing drew me in, made me want to know more. Sad ending though with a glimmer of hope. But isn\'t life like that?

Addicted
Unsub said:

Ed,

nicely penned piece. Makes perfect sense to me. If only all followed this path; but we are all unique & follow our own path even if it is destructive.

Enjoyed,

Dementia
Unsub said:

DD,

I used to run a dementia unit with 45 individuals in. It waas a heartbreaking time but also one of the most fantastic moments of my life.

Just to get a brief moment of reality with an individual would make my day.

I was popular amongst the residents simply because I was easily remembered because of my bald head. Their faces would light up because they new this bald guy was someone they recognised & knew.

I was in the position of being in charge so i could spend much more time one to one with the people.

I understand the difficulties of dementia from both the individuals side & the families side.

I\'d spend hours sitting in a themed room which had props from their era. Might be an old telephone or rationing cards etc. It was when they became immersed in these objects that i would see what I used to call \'golden moments\'. They could recall vivid stories by holding these props & remembering a time when they used it.

Really understood your poem my friend.

It is an emotional journey.

Unsub.

Dementia
Laura said:

Ed,

Waking up from a dream about my mom whom I miss so much, I came to visit MPS because that’s what I do when my nights are devoid of sleep. The first poem I read this early morning is yours. A beautiful poem you’ve written... but so, so sad! It brought tears to my eyes. It made me wonder if that’ll be me one day! Will I be remembered and/or written about as you have of your mom?
You are a wonderful son!

Thank you for sharing!

Reflections of an Ordinary Life
Unsub said:

day,

well versed reflective piece that allows the reader to become absorbed in your words whilst also being submerged in their own thoughts on the theme.

Goldfinch has said it much better than me anyway!
