Rose


 Day 13: 13th April, 13th poem. Brain rather tired but had to get something in for the challenge and so much material to play with.



Rose


Seventeen aunties and uncles 
Two sets of grandparents,
Two sets of great grandparents,
Two great aunts, and first cousins once removed- 
Two families united for baby Rose.
Small faces look up- silence
Water poured- eyes stare in wonder.
Stand drenched in April sun 
Blazing through pink blossom- 
Photos, smiles, blue sky.
Then-
Cake, coffee and cups of tea,
Children's games, 
Happy time together. 
The Baptism of Little Rose.
Baby Rose with her mum, dad and seventeen aunties and uncles.

Why else does a moth fly from the night than to a bold, attractive candle Light? Don't let His extravagant brilliance be extinguished, girl. You're creative, yes? Then fly-away with U.S to the antidote:

Meet this ex-mortal Upstairs, dear, for the most extra guhroovy, pleasure-beyond-measure, party-hardy-reality-show-addiction 24 / 7 you DO NOT wanna miss: where the Son never goes down from a VitSee-ing, ultra-passionate-YOUTHwitheTRUTH in which you'll find nonillionsXnonillionsXnonillions... of deluxe-HTTP [ pi ] opportunities for enveloping, engulfing excitement; where you'll looove an endless eternity of aplomBOMBs ALL falling on thy indelible cranium, as you'll have an XtraXcitinXpose with an IQ much higher than K2!

Here's what the prolific GODy sed: 'the more you shall honor Me, the more I shall bless you' - the Infant Jesus of Prague

Go git'm, girl. You're incredible.
