THE BLESSING (Dream-Based Poem by Patricia Kelly)

[dreamed and written in May 1996]

My grandmother kisses me
softly at the corner
of my eye as if to bless
my vision

My child's heart leaps:
Daddy's Mommy!

This grandmother
who hugely mothered me
against her powdered
and corseted flesh

kisses me at the corner
of my eye as if to say:

look see how you are loved

‘til next time, keep dreaming,

I called you Roswila above, but should probably say, Patricia, though I associate your poetry with Roswila. This is both a wonderful dream and beautifully expressed gentleness.

Thanks, again, Marcia. I answer to both Roswila and Patricia. :-)

I'm glad this dream poem comes across as you say. The death of Jennifer's father is only one of too many grave illnesses around me recently, raising many old memories of loss. So I was myself much in need of comfort before I read ODB's prompt this week.

Oh, I love this one. Meaningful for me, as well. Thanks!

Thanks Nancy Bea. It's quite wonderful to have one of my poems be personally meaningful to someone else.
