DEMENTIA

(i)
Will the love fruit
wither on the vine?
will the moonflower
turn to dust?
Be kind to her
and treat her reverently
as a holy icon.
Always here,
never gone.
(ii)
— Hold fast! Hold fast!
You will see me again
in another world.
We will meet again
and drink the wine of life
in the Always Garden.
By the crystal streams
in paradise,
by the singing waterfalls
you will give me
the shining eye
and the look of eternity
again.
Wait and see.

  1. To Lasha :

    Who does the “her” in the poem refer to? Be kind to “her”, treat “her” reverently, look up to “her” as a holy object. Who is she and also, why is she referred to as an “object”? And we will see “her” again in another world, the next world after death, I guess is what “another world” means, so who is she, who is the “her” in your poem, Lasha, who is this “her” you’re referring to that we’re going to see in the next world after death? And why do you call “her” an object? If she , “her”, if she’s a living creature, then why do you refer to “her” as an “object”? She sounds as if she , “her”, is not only a living creature but a living creature much higher up the scale of evolution than an animal and also much higher up the scale of evolution than your average human being, much more intelligent and spiritually advanced by far, so why call such a Spiritually Actualized creature an “object”? You imply that she, this “her” of yours, is a Spiritually Advanced Spiritually Actualized creature, a “goddess” of some sort, yet you refer to this “her” of yours that you imply is a “goddess” as an “object”. wtf is that all about? Who is this “her” of yours? Thank You, TROJ.

      There is no reference to the person in the poem as an “object”. Who the person is, only Lasha knows. The “She” in the poem is described as a “holy icon”. If you don’t know the difference between a dead “object” and a “holy icon”, that’s your problem! 🙂

        We haven’t heard from your BFF Madame Butterfly in a long time. How much longer are the shrinks going to keep her in a strait-jacket in Chatahootchee under observation? Boy, the shrinks of Chatahootchee really clipped her wings, lol. And how many of your BFF’s are mental cases, like 666 of your 666 BFF’s are totally crazy broads totally nuts ? *grin*

  2. Still waters run deep. Don’t paddle in these waters. Joe. This is not a paddling pond for dysfunctional kids with learning difficulties.

    1. In the 19th century the condition used to be called “senile dementia”, which distinguished it from pre-senile dementia or dementia precox, which is schizophrenia.

      In the 20th century the name Alzheimer’s was introduced because Dr Alzheimer found changes in the brains at post mortem examination. Not all (but most) cases of dementia occur in old people.

      Now where did I put my keys? why did I come here?, what was I saying?

  3. At the end of her life my mother had dementia so complete she couldn’t even remember Who God is.
    I know because I quizzed her daily. Actually pretty much all day, everyday. A captive audience! (lol)

    One thing she did remember though, was my name. Whenever anyone asked who I was, she would invariably say – “Him? Oh, he’s the cook, and a good one!”
    Twas big medicine, and still is..
