The Thing Is

 

By Ellen Bass

 

to love life, to love it even
when you have no stomach for it

and everything you’ve held dear

crumbles like burnt paper in your hands,

your throat filled with the silt of it.
When grief sits with you, its tropical heat

thickening the air, heavy as water

more fit for gills than lungs;
when grief weights you down like your own flesh

only more of it, an obesity of grief,
you think, ​How can a body withstand this?

Then you hold life like a face

between your palms, a plain face,

no charming smile, no violet eyes,

and you say, yes, I will take you

 

I will love you, again.


We will explore why and how we grieve.

Looking at what helps.  Exploring how opening our heart to grief can be a pathway to transformation and wholehearted living.
