For the birthday of my daughter - (revised)

For the birthday of my daughter - (revised) | Poetry for inspiration | Scoop.it

This poem is for my daughter who came dancing in my womb.  When you were born,  my life was out of tune. I gave you a new Mommy. I gave you a new Dad. I adopted you out at birth.

MARY HELEN FERRIS's insight:

So at this wonderful occasion  I want to say:

 Much love on your birthday dear Daughter of mine…may you follow the Creator when it is time. May you know that I placed you in His loving care. He helped me make a hard choice….That it is important  To hear His sweet Voice. You came into my womb Dancing and wild but you will always be His precious Child.

The writer, the candle and the quill | Poetry for inspiration | Scoop.it

The quills were ready and sharp. The  pots full of ink glistened, reflecting  candles glowing  light. All lay patiently waiting  with the parchment in the night. .

MARY HELEN FERRIS's insight:

The wondrous blessings of the Creator…in one word and nothing more. 

This is the day that they would stand alone to convey the Creator’s love.

Late supper on a winter night

Late supper on a winter night | Poetry for inspiration | Scoop.it

Thoughts of you are twirling around. They remind me of the dance of the snow. The howling winds they do re-sound. I am excited your journey is over.  This I know..

MARY HELEN FERRIS's insight:

I rest, and just let things be.

I am thinking of our first meeting.

I remember how music was our greeting.

The way your eyes smiled as we danced.

Who would have guessed a life-long romance.

From the author Fran Blackwell

If I could do all these things beyond time and space in this moment of Grace,

I could embrace, without reservation all the love you give me to give,

I could then say this moment is the moment I am fully awake in your Presence

I could then say, thank you God, for loving my mistakes , and showing me how to learn from them,

Are fairies real? Man claims to have captured mythical creatures with his camera | Poetry for inspiration | Scoop.it
THE only fairy we come in contact with is usually followed by the word cake. But one man believes he has seen the mythical winged creatures and has a photo as proof.
MARY HELEN FERRIS's insight:

I love fairies As a wee one with two brothers and two sisters I often depended on the wee ones for company... As a senior, I try not to talk to the fairies when other people are about.

Long winter song...{featured artistryofcolinhall.wordpress.com} | Poetry for inspiration | Scoop.it

The long winter song tells me it is not done. I have more to learn from its muted sun.

 

MARY HELEN FERRIS's insight:
I want to be ready when the spring rivers flow.  I want to stand with the Creator.  I want to sing his song.But, in the moment it is to winter’s lessons  I belong.

“Be here now” the Creator teaches me.  

In this “at-one-moment” Soul is completely free.
