Laurie’s prompt today is bird-themed.
You have come to me as a hummingbird
three times now.
Once for joy, once for strength, once
Each time I have felt your loved and it overwhelmed
me, knocking air
out of my lungs and I have gasped
each time I realized that it was you – I felt
But you have loved all your grandchildren, held
them all even when we were
scattered far from your arms. You came
because I needed you,
needed your joy, your strength,
But you also came to remind me
that I am worthy
of those gifts.
