The Circle of LIfe

I am participating in the Slice of Life Story Challenge for the entire month of March.  Today is day 30 which means 1 more post and the challenge will be complete, but the writing will go on!  Thank you Two Writing Teachers!

The Circle of Life

Post Script:
My first grandchild, Madeleine, arrived yesterday.  Such a mix of emotions, but I know she will be blessed with an angel to watch over her.  I am extremely hesitant to post this poem, but it captures my feelings so profoundly.  The words were first written about a week ago when I awoke at 2 am and typed away on my phone.  The only words that changed were the gender (it was a surprise) and the lips that told me she was being guarded by her angel.

  1. What a special poem! Congratulations on the birth of your granddaughter. You are blessed and so is she to have a guardian angel watching over her each day.

  2. Beautiful! Are you familiar with Tom Romano's work on multigenre research writing? One genre he discusses is the poem in two voices, and your poem reminded me of the poem in two voices.
