A Voice From Above

" Did I tell you I was visited by the lord? " Our neighbor began to tell... He lived on a busy road So I couldn't hear him very well. I was listening intensely When a voice from above did say, " Alright boy-o! How you doin'?" To a man across the way! Well! I'm sure my face turned whiter Than the purest looking dove, That moment when I too Heard a voice come from above! Quite shaken, I slowly lifted my head. I saw a window wide open. A hand was waving, a smile beaming From where the words were spoken! That neighbor said, " Hello! " to us. Our conversation suddenly did end. And this poor man was left confused By the laughter of my friend! Of course I knew it wasn't him Who came when he was sent For I don't believe that Jesus Has an Irish accent!

Awe thank you so much for your heartfelt expressions. Yes even when touching on negative themes I like to bring a lighter tone. And if my poems make people smile then they are achieving their aim. And I'm truly touched by your comment. Thank you for your kindness Indiana. Many warm wishes. Xx Natasha
