Triggers and Tripwires


A POEM ABOUT GRIEF

As part of my research to accurately deal with GRIEF in the third novel of “The Dragon’s Back” Christian Fantasy Trilogy, I attended the 13 week GriefShare sessions held at my church. It turned out that I needed the healing they provided more than I ever imagined. In the twelth session I was suddenly struck by a random thought about my Dad & I [he went Home to be wiith the Lord in 2005] sitting around a campfire – and I spent the next half hour pouring out liquid emotions I did not even know I had been holding. As a result of that and the combined program, I am now strongly feeling shared grief with any “real” [in contrast to fictional] mourning people I encounter. God is slowly transforming me into a more sensitive Christian man — and though this is not what I sought for in this time of learning, it is defintely the lesson HE wanted me to learn.

The night that I cried over the loss of my Dad, I went home and wrote the poem posted below, It will eventually be a part of Dragonsback #3. I have posted this on Facebook and have received lots of positive response, for it seems to strike a familiar chord in many hearts that have been touched like mine. Please feel free to copy and distribute the unaltered jpg image to those who might benefit from its message.

Love,
Bob
