Thoughtful Thursday Poetry Corner

Enjoy these poems selected, and in some cases written, with our loved ones on the Otherside  deeply in mind and heart.

These poems are discussed and reflected upon each Thursday at noon ET as part of our Downeast 12-Step Bereavement Support Group (ZOOM Meeting).  All are welcome.

We look forward to meeting you there.
