Thanks you for this insight into what must be, at times, a heart-wrenching profession. Great imagery - a lovingly crafted piece.

This should be read by all counselors and those navigating the troubled waters of discord and divorce. Cudos to you for the writing and living of this!

absolutely gut-wrenching and stunning. The colors and set-up very effective, though the poem is so strong it will stand fine alone too. I like the visual effect though. Everything is perfect, from the inclusion of clots, etc. the analogies and the memories, the impact on the son, etc. It makes parents in later years really stop and think as hard as they can, if they're thinking of divorce, as no matter how old their kids are, it tears them up. You show how and what it seems to say and unsay to the family. Blessings.

Well, Playing the role of a RECONCILING FORCE isn't a easy job since nothing can happen unless the other two forces, the ACTIVE and the PASSIVE meets in this RECOCILING FORCE. The problem is intricate when both decide to play ACTIVE. In the absence of the passive factor the intended happening doesn't take place. 'This is a sacred journey beyond my control and I am here to help them re-member and weave from the broken strands of their past' Yes, to help them to erase their past in order to erase the past of the other.

Your reflective message is one of agonization, made up of incompliant participants in an egocentric society. It has become all too commonplace and is surely the downfall of mankind. The way things are going, I wouldn't be suprised if the pharmaseutical companies came up with a divorce pill to fix the whole mess and restore things back to normal. Until then, thank goodness we have concerned and caring turtlesouls like you to shed some light on the ones that still hold a glimmer of hope to cope. Masterfuly scripted, Glenn. pe4ce...
