Addressing Death While Walking with a Boy?

About that title- don’t worry! These are just a merging of the two poems I  will read for you today! My special treat for you. I am giving the gift of poetry to you…but you can just listen.

I spent a bit of time recording some spontaneous poetry readings earlier. I did one on Periscope and the other on my Facebook Page  @ Enthusiastically, Dawn.

Both of these poems are from the the anthology our local RI group of writers published earlier in the year.

I hope you enjoy them. Pardon the chair turning during the Facebook reading…I  should never sit in a twisty chair while reading poetry!

For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’- Acts 17:28

 

This might not be what you think, but as I popped on Facebook this morning to update my status, this is what I wrote (with a teensy bit of editing)…

You can worship Jesus anywhere, anytime…in Spirit in Truth, online and off. When you live life redeemed, you avail yourself to a great  adventure. Why would anyone choose anything less?

This poem still resonates.

Sometimes social media news feeds can leave one feeling starved for sustenance. I am tired of the messages I see lately all over the internet. It brought to mind this poem I wrote a few years back. I struggle to find my voice and discern my own thoughts with the continual pouring out of opinions experienced on any given day.

I give you my offering for the days I have felt like running away from it all, including the sound bites I create in my mind in response to all of it.

Motherhood Minus Social Media (#5MFF)

My daughter in a borrowed baby back pack enjoying the ride with mom.

 

As a single, working mom I toted and doted over my one and only girl. I carried her on my chest, on my back and in my heart. As a Personal Trainer/Director, Fitness Instructor and breastfeeding mama in an all women’s gym, I enjoyed a lot of love and support during this season. My Girl was doted on and toted by many women in the environment we spent our days in from the beginning.
