A Death Of Dying: Revolutionary Email Improv Sonnet

December 18, 2012

You reach, at times,
a death of dying.
When, despite all your rhymes,
you don’t feel like trying.

You make the choice,
and just move on.
You at last give voice
to your independence song.

The pain and hurt
you’ve felt in the past
simply grow inert.
They no longer last.

And as you live without any more crying,
you carry on as your tears are drying.


My Daughter’s Daring Gift: Revolutionary Blogging Sonnet

October 8, 2012

My darling, dying daughter is daring.
Willing to explore her feelings,
able to express her caring
through the pain and suffering she’s revealing.

Though she fears loathing and ridicule,
she loves unseen others more.
By exposing her personal fire’s fuel,
she’s guiding sufferers to a hopeful shore.

Today someone who she’s never met
was lead to read her writings.
As my daughter exposed experiences we’d rather forget
she gave another hope to keep on fighting.

Sometimes a greater love for another just means
we don’t have to die; we just have to be seen.

Written after my daughter wrote in her blog Milla the Night Baker
and someone responded at 5:06 a.m. on October 8th, 2012 saying how her writing was helping.
