Dear Child

Dear Child

Even before you
Could behold the light of Earth
Your mother and you were one
Invisible and inseparable
Enfolded in the Infinite

She awaited the tender weavings
Of the threads of life
Till once in the light of day
Your soul awakened, and one became two

Time, like a spider, weaves
Its web of silver pathways
Upon which we are borne along
Alone, and yet together

The light of love
Weaves inner threads
That bind us on the journey
Becoming, one by one
In the Infinite, once more...


For Marthe

our newly born granddaughter
in gratitude

  1. What a beautiful poem and a picture! Both express the miracle and magic of a new life and the special bond between mother and child! I love the words alluding to the journey of being from oneness to two, and back to oneness. Sending love and light to Marthe and to the whole family.

  2. Ah...thank you so much dear Joseph, you make my heart sing.

  3. Very sensitive and loving expression of your feelings for this happy event.
    Marthe will love you for it, once she'll be able to read and understand. Bless her and all of you.

  4. Thank you so much, dear Charles, for your heartfelt reaction and your blessings!
