On gossamer wings she rode with a prayer and a song to carry her.
The twinkling stars each with their own sparkle, etched the directions to the heart of the matter.
Silk colored rainbows shimmered as the sun peeled over the horizon, kissing the moon goodnight.
Light sheds hope in the darkest of moments.
Faith is is the fiber of our souls.
The unknown pervades the wrestling mind.
Somersaults on asphalt open to the rich soil of Mother Earth,
healing bruises and fractured hearts.
Angels of gossamer wings sustain me, from the earth to the heavens.
I float as “God holds us in the hollow of his hands”.

So much to unpack in this brilliant poem. Thank you for this banquet for thought around the spiritual table that is life…aka “somersaults on asphalt!”
Thank you so much Suzette. It means a lot to me that you enjoyed it as it’s very personal right now and you nailed it my friend. They just keep coming to the table and we keep turning it over. Thanks for being here and your astute observation and message. 💞💗
Thank you for your heartsongs wrapped in poems, Cindy. I do enjoy them.
I’m really glad to know that and you’re welcome 💗🎶 xoxoxo
What lovely imagery in this reassuring poem! <3 I remember as a child, we always had a print of the famous painting of a guardian angel protecting two small children crossing a rickety bridge. That was symbolic of how our mother always tried to make us feel safe and secure as we grew up. As an adult, although I don't rely on literal guardian angels, I have chosen never to live in fear. Thank you, Mom, for giving us confidence to face our fears. Thank you, Cindy, for sharing this beautiful poem! 🙂
I’m glad you got to revisit the gifts and wisdom of your wonderful Mother Cheryl. I wise woman she was. There is something so soothing about an angels presence figuratively and imaginatively to give us the courage to face our fears and never let them rule us. Thank you for your lovely comment and you’re so welcome, I’m truly delighted you enjoyed my poem. 💗💞❣️
Beautiful and hopeful words to pair with the lovely photo, Cindy. 💗💗
Thank you so much Lauren. I’m delighted you enjoyed my poem and chosen picture! 💞
You’re welcome, Cindy! 😍💗
So many great lines, Cindy! I particularly love “ Somersaults on asphalt open to the rich soil of Mother Earth, …”.
I’m delighted to know that that line spoke to you. It was a hard line to leave but I needed to so I’m glad it “hit home”. Thanks so much. ❣️
A lovely poem about faith, Cindy, and how it holds you up. Hugs.
Thank you so much Diana! 💗
Yes, indeed so true! Hugs back 🤗
Wow, Cindy. Amazing .Wonderful imagery and powerful message. Brilliant and heartfelt , my friend. Love it.💕
Oh thank you so much Grace! I’m truly delighted you enjoyed it. That means a lot to me right now… truly! 💗
My pleasure truly, Cindy. 💕
Beautiful poem, Cindy. “Faith is the fiber of our souls.” How true that is and even more so is the next line. “The unknow pervades the wrestling mind.” We have faith that things will work out, but there are so many unknowns that upset and fight in our minds. It hits me just where I’ve been!
Thank you so much Marsha! I’m really happy to know you enjoyed my poem and pointed out the lines that hit you. There are so many unknowns is right Marsha and it’s not always easy during these challenging times.
They are challenging times. We are so fortunate that it should make us ashamed to complain eve a little bit about anything! Imagine living in Turkey or New Zealand, or Ohio right now.
“Somersaults on asphalt open to the rich soil of Mother Earth.” Great analogy, Cindy. Peggy and I are off to the Nile today. Don’t know how much blog time I’ll have, 🙂
Oh so glad you enjoyed that line and the analogy Curt. Oh how wonderful is that. I can’t wait to hear all about it. Have the very best time my friend!!! 💗
Wow! Love this one so much, especially that last line ‼️👏👏
Oh thanks so much Tricia… I borrowed that. So glad you like it! 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
Thank you so much!!❣️💞
Oh my goodness Cindy, what a brilliant and awesome poem. Love this: “The unknown pervades the wrestling mind.” Girlfriend sometimes it seems like the known wrestles with our minds. 😜 Love the somersaults on asphalt Mommy Nature. What a poignant collection of engagement with the various aspects of nature. You are a natural charmer my friend. Thanks so much for sharing my dear dawwwwwlinkkkkk!!!! 😍💖🤗🌹😘💋🥰💞🥂😎

💗🤗🌹 love you! 😘
I love you more my Energizer Mommy Nature! 😍💖😘🌹🤗💞🥰

A somersaulting day can make one see stars, but when the sun looks like an orange we can peel off the skin of despair to find the sweet wedges of hope, and biting down taste a nectar of love made for us as we read the nursery rhyme that “The cow jumped over the moon”; it doesn’t seem plausible but the cow always gives more milk that way and the aging of cheese is an art.
Yes, so true Doug and your wonderful comment it always rich in metaphor and delivery. Thanks my friend!
Loved this “when the sun looks like an orange we can peel off the skin of despair to find the sweet wedges of hope, and biting down taste a nectar of love made for us as we read the nursery rhyme ” of for the love of cows.🐄🐮 moooooooo
