The Gnawing

IMG_20180124_204125_533.jpg

 

The Gnawing 

It’s there in the belly, it sits like a stone,

hard, heavy and dragging them down.

Gnawing in waves, tearing, grating, chewing,

Life imploding, no hope of renewing.

A breaking soul shattered to pieces,

like a mirror smashed by a rock, the light now ceases.

Disintegration.

No going forward, nor even going back.

So continue to clutch that unpredictable track.

It’s over too soon, and yet all seems so far,

Such destinations are never reachable by car.

Blow upon blow, a mind in torture,

The heart rent sore, bent beyond rupture.

And still the Gnawing is there, the closest companion in the darkness.

Five Minutes of Free Writing – Home

31 Days  of  Free Writing and today’s topic is ‘Home’

wpid-wp-1443948548820.jpeg

10.07 pm

Home is Sanctuary, where relaxation, happiness and contentment reign supreme,  or what many of us aspire to.

It isn’t always like that but we cling to this ideal as essential as oxygen.

Home can be the site of domestic violence, home can be a country plagued by war.

Home can be riddled with financial woes or emotional worries.

Home can be warm and loving and a place to be your real self, without any hats.

Home can be children running and giggling, playing without care, and later a gaggle of electronic devices with humans attached! Home can be elderly parents reminiscing in front of the ‘tele’ about the good ‘ol days, knitting or doing crosswords.

Home is a garden with green grass and lush plants and flowers, a swimming pool.

Home is memories good and bad.

Home is in the land down under, yet I went HOME when I returned to Denmark!

Is home one place?

Home is wherever the heart is,

One’s Home is sacred; Home is sanctuary.

Proverbial Thursday – Proverbs and Quotes from around the World

vigelandI find profound wisdom in proverbs, sayings and quotes and marvel at the way they can be so succinct in communicating messages to the reader. Mostly anonymous, they come to us from past generations and across cultures, and speak of the experiences of lives lived and lessons learned. Quotes like proverbs, can make us think more deeply about something.

Each Thursday, I post a Proverb or Saying and a Quote that I find thought provoking.  I hope you will too.

“Liten tue kan velte stort lass”–Little strokes fell great oaks.

Norwegian proverb

“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant.”

(Robert Louis Stevenson)

Some words to ponder about.

Iceland

Courage doesn’t mean you don’t get afraid;
 courage means you don’t let fear stop you.

Your cattle will die, your friends will die, you will die, but your reputation will never die, if you get a good one.

Odin, (Mythical Viking god)

Icelandic proverb from the Sagas.
