NICE And Her Lessons. A Sonnet Dedication to Eric Dierker
Nice floral tributes
This poem has been influenced by my Friend Eric Dierkers work
A vile and violent scene; many lives lost,
Negative energies hovering,
Above scenes of beauty and Delight.
Acts of horror has also adorned this bodily temple,
Stealing a very essential part of my psyche.
I continue to struggle… to strive
To be good to my true or better Self.
To recognise and honour my pain,
Knowing that the good Potter,
Is shaping and moulding me to Love.
But pain follows Love, as night precedes day;
I grow in a spiral, witnessing a Nice which makes me grieve,
While giving validity to my feelings,
Striving to go beyond the past, to make me whole again.

Life's struggles are like summer and winter; night and day. Love follows afflictions; and darkness ascends into Light. These vicissitudes are part and parcel of life's game and inevitable for all. Nevertheless, they can be painful and as such create a river of suffering for many. All my empathies and prayers of good will and invocations of Grace, Fortitude and Compassion at this trying time for many.
God loves us, and like any parent, aspires only for our Highest dreams....we will get there, together or otherwise, but I feel that His promise is to continue to walk with and guide us to the heavenly Light, even unto the end of time. Lots of Love. -Manatita
