On the Fix

On the Fix

She’s on the fix:
repairing hems, 
cleaning the oven,
puttying cracks,
organizing drawers,
straightening picture frames
with no idea
of how to fix
a cracked heart. 
She needs a breaking
of old habits
—a lesson 
on letting be,
leaving her broken things
to heal themselves.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    That’s the most common coping mechanism, to ignore the pain of a cracked heart – fix everything else, keep ourselves busy until we burst. I’ve been there and it doesn’t work.

    I think “fixing” is human nature. It’s hard to let go of that. Love the message in your quadrille and the way it flows from the simple fixables to those that are not as easy.
