Our coping, Substitutions
sorenbarrett said:

Beyond anything else this poem carries a very important message. You are so right that our prejudice against mental issues holds us back. It is the fear of our lack of understanding that keeps up this barrier. I have worked with people with such problems for the past 35 years and I believe like most other things everyone has such problems to a greater o. r lesser degree. When we look at others we need to look in a mirror first, but not with pride but true desire to understand.

A most wonderful message of brotherhood and unity. The format was most interesting adding a free flow of will not force. It is a plea, a call not a mandate that must come from within each of us. A desire to reach out and help others. Very refreshing in these days of \"me\"

Many good lines my friend
\"Time’s, muddying tracks have since washed-away \"
\" effervescent scenes
as now Winter’s colours: paint reminiscing’s - silhouettes.\"
I identify with
\"Treasured one, I sit inking
my anxiety’s musings - a daily routine
soothing efforts - to ease, yearning’s aches\"
And I too wonder how much is lost in translation knowing that it is impossible to translate from one language to another without loss.

I was mourning the passage of summer and ‘the august flowers strutting one last time’. But your words shake you enough in the ‘skin of maturity’ but it was also great for sipping like this Holiday’s Monday morning news paper-I shall be reading this work for this week to come-your poetry as always connects to many elements and dimensions as always! Thank you for the gift Mek!

What a diction of words .. iam always carried away by the flow of your ink

Good work LB

Absolutely beautiful. \"A window removed\" - I dare say we all are, and that is what makes this poem so relatable.

A vividly real existential depiction. I felt I was looking through that window into this poem. \"Time itself demeaned, to a mirage of irrelevance\" again my friend we seem linked in thought since I have just touched on this in my last poem.
Despite the seriousness of this poem I love your playful play on words:
\"Fallibility’s red button, can annihilate
Nuclear family, without provocation!\"
\"A three day butterfly, saunters
I rejoice in its unperturbed effervescence
Symbolic of summer’s last hurrah, August
Flowers strutting one last time\"
A beautiful and poignant passage.
All summed up in the next line.
\"Timelessness is gleaned in such small details\"
Such a feeling of Gestalt in this piece.
It is our now, we must cherish\"
Beyond the literary beauty of this pieces words in deep wisdom amd meaning.

You always have an interesting and engaging way with words

This line really stands out

I look up and anchor myself
Within a gust of wind

Love that line

I think we all need to feel that connection to our real true self to our worth and to the world

I liked reading this 🙂 and like the mention of those butterfly’s and flowers

I know I ajways feel that bit better when I feel more connected

Lord!! Just the video alone had my heart crying. Such a serious subject. We don\'t realize how lucky we are....we GET TO......experience! However that comes, or what it looks like...\"In simply seeking, our peace in realising Those precious moments, free From challenges n distractions\". ✨️ \"A ding, a sigh and a gifted smile\", they\'re all precious...including the ones meant to be lessons. \"There is value in our struggle\", yes indeed!! Each moment forms who we are or are trying to be.
Very emotional read! We must remember! \"Here I am, in the noise and the silence\"! Loved it! 🪄 ✨️

If ever there was an inspiring poet Mek it is you.

There is value in our struggle

In simply seeking, our peace

In realising

Those precious moments, free

From challenges n distractions

Beautiful. 💖

A common miracle
sorenbarrett said:

The format of this piece is wonderful.
\"dimming shine

of a late summer’s night

unable, to dim the glow

draping them, from head to toe\"
Such poetic imagry so well written.
\"entrancing flames, emanating

from her guardian’s, chest

highlighting, the binding path

illuminated: by their drunken hearts\"
This passage struck me the most in that there is an inexplicable poetic ring to it that reverberates in the mind and soul.

Bella Shepard said:

I\'ve always loved her music, but never really knew her struggles of life. It seems she poured it all into her music. This song is so pure and haunting with her beautiful voice, gaining strength as each voice joins her. As I read this wonderful tribute the dam just burst,and it became hard to breath. Being a mother, I cannot fathom the anguish she suffered. You\'ve done a masterful job in this wonderful tribute, God bless her and the son she loved so dearly, peace is with them now.

A most appropriate song to accompany this poem a eulogy to a most accomplished artisan. The pain that we suffer is seldom seen by others during our life but felt by many in our passing.

Such an incredible songwriter and singer... among other things. Very sad. I\'ll always remember her. My favorite is her interpretation of \"Nothing compares to u\" written by Prince. Very nice tribute!

Hi Mek I heard of her passing away yesterday .. and only the other day before I heard this , I was listening to the song ‘ nothing compares to you ‘ she had such a beautiful voice / lovely singer

I didn’t realise she struggled with so much .. so sad that she committed suicide .

A sad yet nicely expressed writing Mek .. ))

My dearest Mek.Some people just aren\'t meant for this world and she struggled all her life and made the most magnificent music out of her pain. She was a legend in the world not afraid to speak her truth and beyond her exterior was a very fragile being. She never really accepted herself. Another tragedy of life. 💖

Poetess: that most profound, Lioness
Bella Shepard said:

First I listened to the video, enraptured by her eloquence, and passion. Then I read your poem aloud and found such eloquence and beauty in your words. I was stunned as I so often am by the depth of your heart and soul. How you find the words, and put them together in such an extraordinary way is a gift dear poet. Again, a thousand favs!

Violet bluebell( used to be yellow rose) said:

A lovely read .. so many interesting and beautiful
Words in this

A serendipitous gift, affording me vitality
Then breathless with unbridled anticipation
I’m immersed within her poetry’s waterfall

That’s just beautiful way with words

Great poem .. loved the read

Introverted Sage said:

I read this a few times! Each time evoked something different.

First read (before listening to the video) reminded me of something I was writing on not long ago; what it would be like to be someone\'s muse and not know it. And likewise to have a cherished muse that unknowingly and yet seamlessly provides inspiration for masterpieces.

Listening to the video and re-reading is humbling. Makes you really think of the self-importance and bigness carried by some when we\'re but a speck in the cosmos with no more importance than a fly.
..\'What if you are just boring\'.. is that not a goal? ha

Lastly, the flow of this is sooo smooth.
\'as if a worded silk caress\'
like a \'peaceful easy feelin.\'

Nice work!
Thank you for sharing
