CELESTIAL BEINGS

A familiar aroma floated towards me, As I looked up into blue azure skies, And beyond, a glowing golden horizon. I could barely see the shapes of an old Man holding a young child’s hand, The man wore a long white robe And was smoking a handcrafted Pipe, and the spiraling smoke from it Triggered a memory, who was this man. The man didn’t speak much until I asked who the child was, God granted us a short Appearance so that the two of you Could meet, tears rolled down my Face, as I took the child And held him tight in my arms, For a brief moment, a true miracle! We are your guardian angels said This kind man as he took back My bundle of life and then gradually Disappeared with his charge Leaving behind a spiraling stream of Smoke, the distinct aroma of the tobacco He smoked, my dad, with my child, his grandson, Celestial beings who dropped by For their love to be felt.

Jennifer you must have been comforted after experiencing that celestial visit from your loved ones in the sky. I once had a visiter come to me in the night long ago. I knew who it was and why he came, I felt peaceful and comforted, it’s never happened again. Congratulations on a well deserved poem of the day… Belle

Many of us have a spiritual guide that stays with us ALWAYS, first one we see when we return home. Reading this, emotion bunched up in my throat until its heaviness brought tears for you, for life, for love. Seems you have had your share of challenges this past year, too? I'm touched by all your messages, you cared and some others. Is there anything I can do for you via positive meditation and prayer? A powerful poem - not for wimps, is it? Be golden ... CayCay

A poem with deep emotions. Pity it's a real occurrence, so that one can feel the pain of separation. A worthy POTD.

I know you can feel your father and your child so close. They will always be a part of you. Your thoughts caress gently around me. This is beautiful and tender, all at the same time. Congratulations Jennifer, on Poem of the Day. Hugs, Brandy

WoW! Such a deeply moving piece. POTD most assuredly deserved for this . I was deeply touched having lost a baby of my own. My first baby died within me before birth. God Bless my friend. JB
