Product Description


This beautiful book is a moving collection of ninety poems exploring the themes of death, separation and bereavement.

When a beloved partner dies, a long lasting bond comes to an end. The one left behind enters a silence, the daily exchange of words no longer there. Former Waldorf teacher Maarten Ploeger has written an inner dialogue with his wife after her death -- an intimate conversation which offers great rewards for the reader.

This is a very special book which will give strength to those in the first phase of loss, and a sense of wonder and appreciation to all readers.


Honeymoon of mourning

maelstrom of feelings

reigniting love

You on your wings there

I here on mine

there and here

melting in crucible

of undivided

being together still

Heaven is no place

is consciousness

here as there

there as here

a dance moving us

Softly we touch

with feelings of before

again in love

sensing again the wings of the butterfly

the butterfly you have become
