A Blessing From God Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

A Blessing From God

Rating: 4.7


Quietly whispering tunes in imagination,
letting them flow outward into snow-filled memories,
sliding across on a sled big enough to hold all six
of us sisters.
A blessing from God, we were always able to be
together and play.
A close-knit family, kept together by a Mom who loved
us beyond compare.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
This poem was written while thinking of the six of us, because the other two were not yet born. They were both born in Arizona. We were still living in New Jersey and this memory is from then.
Yes, I have six sisters and one brother. One sister, died though.

When I read your poem for a second time the thought struck me that we believe in a God who loves us beyond compare and then there is the parent who loves us beyind compare, together God and parent make the world safe, blessed, and happy. What a great start to life in their combined love! And you - we - can always return to those memories for strength and comfort. Your poem will keep this idea alive..
