Tuesday Writing Challenge

Devereaux Frazier and Beth Amanda are currently hosting the Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge which was started by our star writer Christine Ray. We hope to offer all of you something that will spark your creativity and willingness to participate.

Today’s prompt: Write a poem that starts with before this moment.

Before This Moment…

Before this moment, I dreamed in wonder

Will there be birds singing or loud thunder

Before this moment, I was safe and warm

Now cold surrounds me like a winter storm

Before this moment, I had no concern

Now that I am out, now way to return

Before this moment, there were no light

Now brightness abounds, blinding my sight

Before this moment, feeling mom was rare

Now cuddled close, feels beyond compare

Before this moment, the sound from above

Could never compare to this cooing of love

Before this moment, I dreamed in wonder

With this new life, many things to ponder

As we all marvel at the newness of life, let us never forget how very important kindness is to that new life.

Always be Kind
