Golden Threads

The following poem I wrote as the result of a process I worked through as explained in his new ebook, Escape to the Homelands of the Heart – Awaken your Inner Poet, by Michael R Dale. A book I can recommend to anyone who writes, or wants to write.

I ‘dreamed into’ the archetypal lover inside me and met the feeling of grief; my own grief for old loves lost, but more pertinently the grief of my present love, whose daughter is leaving us for Canada, after a wonderful four month stay with us – a healing time for mother and daughter, as well as a renewing of their love for each other.


Watching grief
as it floods
over my beloved
Leaving her
awash with tears

My close presence
Small comfort now
Barely bridging
her chasm
of despair

The fear in her eyes
of losing the jewel
of their connection
Now so painfully
about to break

And all those
old losses
rushing in
to deepen
present grief

She fought hard
and laid bare
to win back
her daughter’s
melting heart

Daring to unwind
their ‘wound cloth’
they wove truth strands
of silk, to build
a new tapestry of love

Four mending months
and now the rightful
time to go
A mother’s grief
A cavern I can’t fill

But a tapestry
of gold sits
in both their hearts
Threads will connect
across the great divide

Until reunion is possible again
