Physique charming

Words flattering, smile so sweet

Like bees to honey

Appearance masks his deceit

His winning is others grief

Puzzle at the scene

Searching for her memories

Flashes of bits and pieces

Calms her with his gentle touch

Smile cases away her fear

Wrinkles over faces

Tracing the weather and places

Zigzag through the soul

Remembering friends and foe

Released from bondage

Freedom joyfully embraced

Painful memories

Disappeared in far distance

Twirl in heavenly dancing

My daughter Mercy’s baby is arriving any minutes by now. I still remember back in March when we skyped and talked with each other. Mercy and Will showed us the ultrasound film. We made a virtual hug at the end. The joy of parenthood, the wonder of bringing a new life into this word were so overwhelmed. Mercy has been excited and celebrated the process by capturing the moments in photos. The family and community are so enthusiastic and supportive. This gives them a firm assurance and confidence.

Song of lullaby

Watching baby’s sleepy eyes

Overwhelming joy

Parents’ faces radiate

Gift of fulfillment resides
