Travel Light #dVersepoets #OLN (In memory of Glenn Buttkus)

Very sad to learn of the passing of Glenn Buttkus a member of the dVerse poets pub. He had such an original voice and he never held anything back. Lillian hosts Open Link Night this afternoon, where we can share any poem prompt free. I am sharing a poem I published this morning on my YouTube channel that speaks of traveling through life and ends on a note that we all have a safe place waiting in the mists. Glenn is home. ๐Ÿ’—

  1. So beautiful Tricia – a delightful and fully effective light touch – sparkling writing…

  2. Wow Tricia, this is absolutely divine. What a glorious way to celebrate lifeโ€ฆI love how you refer to it is โ€œtravelingโ€. Thank you for sharing, dear friend. Beautifully done as always ๐Ÿค๐Ÿค—

  3. Thank you Tricia. Glenn was a special force unto himself โ€” strong, raw yet refined, unfiltered, real, and wholly irreplaceable. I truly feel the chasm he has left. Certainly I, and I believe dVerse as well, will be less without his unique view of the world. Wonโ€™t be quite the same again. Glenn was a thinker, and poet with his own unique voice. And he was my fellow traveler for many years. I feel the ache.

    1. So sorry, Rob, it’s such a gift to have a friendship like you had with Glenn for so long, and the grief must be allowed to flow from this loss now. ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’—

  4. Nice sentiment, Tricia. Btw I finally got to read your poem in Gabriela’s “Hidden in Childhood.” I like picturing you as the funny one ๐Ÿ™‚ Gary
