conjuring enjoying triggering
grounding imprisoning disorienting liberating
allowing forgiving detaching
In the trauma support group I’m attending, we need to dig into memories, then write and talk about them. You can guess some of the emotions that are triggered while doing it. Our teacher/mentor said her teacher/mentor told her, “you don’t want to skin the patient. You pick at the edges very slowly.” Today on my drive through water winter wonderland (one of Michigan’s State nicknames) I started thinking about memories.
Today’s offering is a diamante form poem, which I think is a good fit for the topic.
Lillian is today’s host for dVerse. Lillian says:
