A Poem Is Born

 

fingers softly embrace the pen

the life of a poem is about to begin

in the mind of God it is conceived

soon in my heart to be received

rhythmical movements as thoughts begin to flow

warmed by the Light, I begin to glow

deep inside, but moving to the surface

yes, indeed, this poem has a purpose

I pray to God as this poem is born

the reader will be encouraged and not left forlorn

it's purpose is to lift a spirit

finally fulfilled when you read it or hear it

thank you God for this gift I have received

a poem is born simply because I believed

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
