Sighs Of September Still Cry
~*Marge Tindal*~

In the muted aftermath
tears in flow of storm-in-wrath
The lives of many, forever changed,
in natures act of rearrange~


(A neighbor's home)


("It's only a tree, they said." And still I cried~)


(All over town ... you can't get there from here)


(This is the signature of Frances)


(No leaf unturned)

~More photos of the destruction of Hurricane Frances~
It doesn't end ... and the trauma is with soooooo many~

Pray God ... keep those in the path of Ivan safe !!!

~*When the heart grieves over what it has lost,
the spirit rejoices over what it has left.

Dear Marge, your report in words and pictures touch me deeply.

My heart goes out to all those who have been "invested" by this destructive power.

Love and hugs.

Oh, Marge, these photo's are just heartbreaking. The rage of Mother Nature is certainly evident in these pixs.
I have yet to reach my cousin and her family and I can only pray they are safe.

Prayers that Ivan dies quickly and causes no damage.

Hugs, Marti

Dear Marge,

To see all the damage done by nature's fury, is so unbelievable to me. Your strength and courage in spite of it all is quite amazing. I pray along with you and others that Ivan will veer away and not cause further damage to lives and property. I weep with you dear friend.

Love,
Patricia

These photos gave me goose bumps. I have a good friend in Fl. who can't seem to get her meds because the Pharmacy is not opened ... Many are suffering from this disaster. I too would cry, even if it is just a tree. God the creator has made that tree... We humans have taken God's creation for granted and now Mother Nature is rebelling. Amazing to me is that when some disaster happens, like  Sept. 11, everyone prayed .... everyone got on their knees humbling themselves to God. Why is it that we need to be reminded that God is always there in sorrow or happiness? I think as humans we need to be reminded to give thanks for what we do have.
I will pray that Ivan goes out to sea.... I have been praying for all those in Fl. going through these horrific disasters.
Marge, not to worry God is a loving God and love heals.
Love and peace, Maggie ((~.~))

Marge, you're a real trooper. In spite of how much turmoil you are in with your world having gone topsy turvy, you are able to keep your friends abreast of the frightful situation and with pictures of the  devastation.

Keeping you and your loved ones in my prayers. ~ and may Ivan lose his thunder!!!

Sending some of my angels to join forces with yours in protecting you all!

Love & God's Light,

Margie girl, darling sister of my soul, take care of you, for you are and always will be special. Im praying that Ivan veers away and you wont be in his path of destruction.

Take care, you and yours are in my prayers, and yes it might only be a tree, but it was on your land, and you knew it leaf and branch, I know it I.

Its just a tree
They said
And yet, and yet
I knew that tree
Had seen the leaves
Bud, then burst forth
Watched them
Fill the proud branches

It shaded me
On days too hot
Sat beneath its branches
Surrounded with
The laughter of family
And friends

Sheltered from storms
When the air fizzed
And the rain fell
It held a special place
In my memory as
The place where I
Felt love stir again

It was not just a tree
Never just a tree
It was one of my trees
And I connected with it
Felt the spirit
Whispering to me
Whenever I walked
Or sat beneath its
Loving branches

And now its gone
I shall mourn its loss

Marsha


Love you always
and forever
Mushy





Tomorrow is another day I don't know what it holds
but I can face the future with courage brave and bold

I can't imagine being in such a storm, and Ivan's coming too.  This has been a stormy season for y'all.  I'm just glad you came through it okay.

Hi Marge,

It is sad to see old trees toppled. I am so glad you are safe.
There are still people here in Jacksonville  without power. My husband works for JEA and he has been putting in 16 hour days trying to get people back in lights. It's been hard on everyone. I don't think Florida can take Ivan. We need to pray for God's mercy on us.

Hugs,
Deb

How sad Marge. All of FL is in my prayers. They have just let my husband know to be ready to fly to FL to evacuate a prison there because of Ivan. If he goes it will be tonight.
Be safe everyone.
Love,

Let us hope that Ivan takes another path and blows out into the sea. You poor folks of Florida have had enough rage from nature and her swirling winds.
Love coming your way from Ohio.

Here's hoping that Ivan turns his wrath away from landfall, for everyone's sake.
You Floridians sure do need a breather!

Dearest Marge

I have no words enough
to say how terrible it is.
Never I will forget the name Frances.
You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
With all my love

Dear Marge:

These pictures make me cry too!  A tree to me, is like a good friend and I would feel the loss of every one. I have been giving thanks that you and your family have been spared, but there are so many others who haven't!  Prayers will continue!

Love
Betty Lou

My heartfelt thanks to ALL of you for your replies, prayers and more prayers~

I know that I am blessed with the safety of my loved ones and I do give thanks for that, it is just a really depressing time here right now.

Seeing the damage, meeting with those who lost it all, holding their hands while the tears flow, trying to hold my own in check and feeling the anxiety mounting again with each report of Ivan, is just enough to take all the strength I've got right now.

I would want NO ONE in the path of what we've gone through ... and pray God that Ivan would just go away !!  Far, far away ... out to sea and then out of everyone's lives~

Giving a special thanks here to two dear used-to-be members, Pat/regards2you and Doreen Peri for their never-ending uplifting messages of care also~

And to a dear little BrokenWingedAngel, who thought to offer to send whatever help I feel my brother, Tony, who lost his home and most of his belongings to Wench Frances, would need~  You are so kind and caring little one~  When I know what would help most, I would not hesitate to let you know.
I love you for your thoughtfulness~

No matter what happens ... I know I am doubly blessed with friendship from all over the world and return the love ten-fold~

Muys, darling lady ... you are LOVE~

Pardon me for not finding the time to respond to so many of you dear friends on your poetry right now ... but truthfully ... I am just emotionally drained~

Love and *Huglets* to all~
~*A very tired Marge*~

Dear Marge

I know you are a very strong person and that is why you have 'held' it together.  Please know that my prayers are ongoing.

Love Isobel ox
