A Blessing From God


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.

    You must be lucky and proud to have such a loving mother. Mothers are indeed a great blessing from God. May He protect all mothers and fathers! (Report) Reply

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
