Lydia on Her Blessing Day

infant girl,
dressed in a long
white gown as satin
as her skin, tranquilly
lies resting in my arms. With
blue eyes softly shut, she seems to
blissfully slumber, unaware of 
how innocently beautiful she is.

*The picture, of course, was Lydia on her blessing day
just a few months old. She is my youngest granddaughter
and just turned five years old after Xmas! 

For the Gerber Baby Contest of PD

    Andrea, this is a very gentle and beautiful portrait. I love the shape of the poem itself, structurally, and it seemed like it just sort of dropped from your fingers like a sigh.
