What evil caused the fall from grace What caused the fight that banished those And shut the doors of heaven closed. Evicted, slipped to earth disgraced. They were no longer pure or chased. They lost their wings, they lost their souls. Still immortal, yet no more whole. Heaven rent in two, un stable The bloody war, truth no fable. The vanquished lost their holy place.
Female, wife, full time mother and Grandmother. I am not as happy go lucky as I used to be but I am still bubbling along on simmer! I have three handsome sons all grown and flown.The youngest married with a beautiful wife and two sons of his own. Eleven years ago I was working, running a home, driving and socializing then bang in a split second all that was gone. I had an accident at home. I broke my back, not for the first time, I had broken it 10 years previously as well. Unfortunately this time I had broken it really badly and it was truly messed up so I had to have two operations. I was told before each operation that the outcome could mean I spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair. Still as some guy once wrote "I am still standing " yes "better than I ever was " not quite but with the help of a walking stick and as long as I do not stand or sit in one position for too long, I am still standing! Update I no longer use the walking stick . I had lots of friends before the accident but when things like this happen, you loose most of them. Their lives move on and mine stood still and so they left me behind ...I know that is just the way life is but it hurt and always will. Then I looked around and saw those who were still there for me, these friends are the roses in my garden they need to be tended well. They are the diamonds in the dust, I will of been married 50yrs plus this year . Pain and boredom are my enemies now, I have to find different ways to approach life, use my pain befriend it almost...yer right , well that is what they tell me at the pain clinic ROFLMAO ...... if only I could! I have found an outlet for my fears, frustrations and night terrors . I have started writing poetry if that name can be applied to my writing. I hope I do not come over as a moaning winger. I hope I am past all that. I also hope that you might see how the poetry is moving from very dark through the grey and
hopefully in to light ??
I need to update this a little here. I have worked very hard over the years since my accident, I go to the gym regularly, I have a Pilates class and a core class once a week . The guys at the gym and my Pilates teacher cajoled, teased, bullied and encouraged me to abandon my walking stick! :) My back is no longer straight it is C shaped because of the injury and I have lost two and a half inches in height but my Pilates and Core teachers have helped me to stand up as straight and as strongly as possible. Pain and depression are still hanging on my arm but I have weapons to use against them and if I say so myself I cope well.
I have made lots of new friends, real diamonds. I am also very grateful for all the support and help I have encountered here on Wordpress. Hugs and welcome to everyone who visits.

Chaste. I always thought that chastity was overrated and would certainly rather be chased. At my age, as my father would say, “that ain’t gonna happen” 🙂
I love the concept of your poem and the message. It seems that many of the poems, including mine, chose the word fable to go with stable. It seems to be a message hidden within the rhyme.
I do agree, there is a hidden message here! Let’s face it stable is an interesting word. I do love the Décima form. 💜
I agree. It is challenging and interesting to do a Décima. After a while, Haiku becomes mundane.
I do have to say I live all types of poetry . I have not found any of it mundane yet 💜
Then you are a true poet at heart and in thought. I have to admit that I am not. 🙂
My son is the serious poet in the family.
We are all poets at heart, just some more than others💜
That is very, very true. 💜
It’s comforting 💜
Your words are never mundane.💜
It’s kind words, like yours, that keep my poetic side from completely giving up.
Never give up , never 💜
My son has promised to get my other 18 books published if I die before I can get it done.
With more years behind than in front, my ghost will return to haunt him until he does it. 🙂
Lol bless him! I’m like you having more years behind me than Infront …we have to make them count. 💜💜💜
Exactly! These years are far better in many ways than the first 50.
Or even 60 plus in my case 💜🤣🤣
I had a post in July about turning 70. My son, granddaughter and sister came to Florida to celebrate with me.
It’s a tad scary, I am three years behind you 💜
Inside, I feel 30. The wrapping paper is wrinkled, but the treasure still remains. 🙂
Exactly, that’s a great way of putting it 💜
I like this line: “Still immortal, yet no more whole.”
Thank you Frank you are so supportive, thank you 💜
Powerful words, as it is in all your writing…!
Thank you so much 💜
Ooh, this is very good, sis!
Thank you Sis 💜💜💜
Thank you for reading 💜
Thank you Chel
I really like this one, Willow! Chastity is highly overrated 😉
Yes indeed, but fallen angels crave it 💜
I can’t blame them! 🧡
Thank you Ron 💜
