I have just heard about the sudden death of Peaches Geldof and it has saddened and shocked me. I am not posting a poem that I had mapped out for today. Instead I am reposting this poem which was written after the sudden loss of a young family member. Utter sympathy goes out to her family, children, and loved ones.

Dedicated to all those gone, too soon and too young –

Always in our hearts…









How can it be?

When it is not natural.

Not this way,

from the blind side.

How can it be?


When it is out of order,

out of the ordinary,

extra ordinary.

You oxymoron,

natural order.

How can it be?
