Tricia 2013 

About triciabertram

I have written all my life. Writing helps me to make sense of a world I often don’t understand. Poetry is my supreme solace, closely followed by literature and music. When my son ended his life in 1999 I embarked on the most difficult journey of my life, my grief journey. To survive in this unknown, harsh landscape I had to write. It was for me, the only way I could even begin to move forward. Then in 2009 my darling husband died suddenly and so my journey continues. I write about other issues but because of my life experience, grief and death are continuing themes in my writing life. In our culture I believe there is a fear of death, an inability to accept the inevitability of our mortality, and this creates enormous difficulties for the bereaved and those around them. I have begun this blog in the hope I will create a small ripple in the pond of fear that is currently drowning the reality of death and grief. I will continue to skim the stones of my truth, watch them bounce, and see how many ripples I can make.

  1. Very succinct, yet poignant!

  2. Very Sad Tricia, good use of the words.

  3. Beautiful in its melancholy Tricia.

    And this form fascinates me 🙂

    Love and hugs xxx

    • It can be addictive, Christine, and exhausting. I end up with books all over the place and then I’m too tired to put them away.
      My piano is covered with little book spine poems that didn’t make the grade. 🙂

  4. I can see this happening quite easily! Xxx 🙂
