Open Link Night Poem

* Here is a poem created for Open Link Night-Week 66 over at dVerse Poets Pub.  It’s what came to mind when I read the part about life not being fair sometimes. This is a poem about secondary infertility.  I struggled with it painfully for years, but have come to more peace and understanding.  I wish I could say complete peace.

Zinnias in Bloom

Zinnias in Bloom

Womb Once Blessed

Prayers sent to heaven
Whispered in the winds
Begging to be blessed again
Her womb once cradled
Her body once gave birth
Her breasts once nourished
God’s blessings of a girl
Treasured daughter, her only one
Time passes, longing remains
Hoping for a daughter or a son
Fallow womb, painful heart
Begging to be blessed again
If not Your will, then I pray,
Send understanding in its stead

    “Begging to be blessed again
    If not Your will, then I pray,
    Send understanding in its stead”
    this is the crux, isnt it…
    total and baleful.

    a poem, a prayer, a wish, a visualization, and that’s the beginning. … joy is always in a true beginning. Beautiful!
