the days and the losses are moving with unstoppable speed. we lay on her bed eating cherries, swirling the succulent flesh against our tongues, eyes closed; savoring.

today, we will lay on her bed again. i will rise. she will not.

i will sweep the cherry pits to the floor. the fruit of this life is all that matters.


  1. Graciel,

    I am so terribly sorry, honey. Keeping you close in my thoughts today and sending you love.

    xoxo gillian

  2. Graciel,

    Simply put, I couldn't have said it better than Gillian....

    You are in my thoughts, too.... Wishing you strength and peace. Sending hugs...

  3. Sending you love and light. You are in my prayers.

    I spent yesterday and today eating luscious organic radiant red cherries from you-know-where and cried spontaneously. Perhaps they were tears for you. I now think so.


  5. no words will tell you what I feel. believe that my thoughts are with you. such a beautiful girl your
    mother made. xo

  6. You have been in my thoughts, again and again. Sending love and light and hugs.

  7. i hate that damn unstoppable speed. i hate it and damn it and yet - savoring it seems like the perfect only response.

    i think of you and she and your time together and send you love all day long.

    i wish i had words.


I always appreciate the time you take to comment on my blog. Thank you for stopping by. Peace from my heart to yours. xo, Graciel
