The Making of God’s Children Book, September 2019 – April 2020

I will be adding to this page as time goes on. I will number these poems in chronological order. This collection is intended for our book, “God’s Children.” All Illustrations by Dahlia

#1 Goodnight

Sweet dreams my love and kindness
may you rest well, as you are blessed.

I hope you will remember the climbs,
no matter the falls or how many times.

May you remember being so brave
and the kind Friends and the first forgave.

Your daily smile and essence to be.
May you see flowers, birds and trees.
I love you my, Dear, with all my-being.

#2 The Joy Sonnet

There were birds and butterflies,
rainbows and wildflowers,
sunsets and radiant skies
and sandcastle’s with towers.

There were fancy tea parties
and city night park walks.
There are crayon hearts
and goodnight sweetheart talks.

I find in you my most dearest love
and spot you out like a Morning Dove.
We make watermelon wedges
and top Sundaes with Fudge.

Each day is a new blessing
and you tug at my heart strings.

#3 A Child’s Day

Sun hats and morning glories,
a day of singing breezes
and picking fruit like blueberries.

Cakes and strawberry pies,
lots of ribbon and ties.
The lemonade is from hand,
as well as our pointed fans.

There’s Peter Pan and Captain Hook,
while we watch out for Tinker Bell.
For sure, we can never tell ~

Is it fairy dust or sunlit sparkle flurries?
It’s time in a day for endless stories,
in Praise of the day for no hurries.

#4 Sonnet to God

I found a way in
with the sonnet, God,
in this glass vessel
of holy water –
reflecting the sun
while crystal rainbows
shined out into day
divine assurance
unchanging deliverance
this almighty sound
in meter, this matter(s).
I will sing forevermore  –
a locket of light 
anchored in my heart.

[This was later inserted, in place of another poem removed]

#5 Nature Sonnet

To follow nature,
we hold our children’s
hand to God’s door.
As this all matures,
with the weeping willow
and the joy in heart flowers,
we brush the Yellow Poplar.
To find the green showing

its vastness. Beginning,
with the greenhouse
to the color painted orchards,
the sun dances around
and the moon a time chart.
It is here, I say, Amen.

#6 Goodnight Dreaming

What if I could bring
you to the stars,
blast us out this thing
going off the radars?

I would hold your hand
and chart the foreign terrain.
I’m sure it would be grand,
out of this mundane.

We could learn about orbits’
this way of being together
always. We would whisper it’s
beautiful, with nothing to fear.

Perhaps, we’d return from the stars
when we were so way out far,
but I found you were asleep in bed
and tonight has illuminated.

#7 The Dandelion Fairy Sonnet

The dandelion fairy
is perhaps the buzziest
of the bunch, weaving
between bumble bees
and dragonflies, yellow
misting lawns with hope.
Her bright flowers with
petals of divine light.

A wing caught in joy
the mother and child
pick dandelions, morning
moving to their fingertips,
while the fairy flutters on,
to the next child of God.


#8 Rainbow Plays

Red is for the bunches of cherries
Orange is for the Autumn leaves
Yellow is for lemonade
Green is for the growing grass
Blue is for the big blue sky
Purple is for the soft sweet plum
White is for the winter snow

We see joy after rain
within what color’s can contain.
We bring our hopes up to the sky,
with beauty so very hard to deny.

#9 The Animal Friends

There once was a Giraffe
who was known for his laugh.

The lion however,
was a serious endeavor.

While the Monkey
could hang and be free.

Where as the penguin
didn’t know where to begin.

And the dolphin?
They called him Munchkin,
in which made him smile and grin.

However, the sweet donkey
you see,
just wanted to be taken seriously.

Whether out at the Zoo,
or alone and feeling blue,
remember everyone,
the animals are your friends too.

# 10 A Peculiar Fish

Once there was a peculiar fish –
his name was wiggly fish.
His best friend was goosefish,
who had a pet catfish.
His best friend’s favorite color was whitefish,
while wiggly’s favorite color was bluefish.
At night he wishes upon starfish
and believes in God and has a angelfish.
He was very strong, so no one called him a weakfish.
Wiggly’s cousin had a pet dogfish,
who loved reading about kingfish!
Wiggly traveled all the seas with globefish
and loved warm weather with other sunfish.
He helped build walls with rockfish and
he swam in circles and did not want to be a flatfish!

He loves balloons and is helped by blowfish
and fashions giving gifts with ribbonfish.
He doesn’t fight, especially with swordfish!
He loves peanut butterfish and jellyfish ~
and knows how to ride a bicycle and peddlefish.
Wiggly always admired lionfish
and had lots of money and goldfish.
He loves his Mom, cuttlefish –
have you ever seen a sawfish?

Can you think of any other fish,
my sweetheart, babyfish?

#11 Christmas Poem

The winter is near
with hot chocolate
and Christmas cheer –

It’s the most holy
time of year with joy
and singing in prayer –
a child with their favorite toy.

A time for family
or friends, but giving
is always lovely –
Charity on God’s wing.

Round in peace,
round in happiness,
may kindness never cease –
and hope for goodness.

# 12 Silly, Silly Mr. Moon

It’s the kind of night
when all is well and all is right.

It’s bedtime now
and time to take it slow.

So tell me a goodnight
story that shows love
forever more and tonight.

Tell me about the stars
that can’t really be that far.

Explain the Planets like Mars
and even honking cars.

Make me a bed with goose down feathers
that keep me warm in that cold, cold weather.

Make sure my socks are warm,
in this snowflake globe’s winter storm.

Sing me today’s last day song
before I nod off all night long!

#13 The Queen Rainbow Fairy

In our joyous new beginnings
it is like a rainbow
reaching out on a wing
with red aglow.

Misting into orange sky
then sparkle to yellow.
Could green begin to fly?
While our blue starts to grow

and finally purple,
with this marvelous intent
to change and begin again.
In love our heaven’s sent.

#14 The Dove Fairy Villanelle

The Fairy for the Doves
has a bird call
that has the utmost love.

It seems to climb so tall
even though a song
and it captivates all.

Even Sparrows sing along,
truly all feel at home
for each of us, we belong.

#15 Divine Light Sonnet

The gift of divine light
is forevermore than bright,
but it is for the holy life and spirit.
Its power is in goodness
with a shield and a bow.
It is God’s fortress
of protection aglow.
To harness this love goes – 

for it is without fear,
but watching birth grow.
It is of Heaven 
with peace on its wings
bringing beginnings again
and joy on a string.

#16 Spirit Infinite

You can’t break
the grace of stars
making their destiny
in divine and unconditional
of this here love

#17 My Prayers’ for You

May the archangels
surround you when in need
and plant the protection seed

May the sun and moon light
show God’s love and hold you 

May the oceans and mountains
add praises for your days’

May the trees and flowers
add beauty to your journey

May any children’s 
rejection of you
make you all the more
confident in how strong
you are, forever long

May you learn your biggest fear
is a gift and is just a test

May you find joy
in at least one heartfelt way

May you learn the language
of the greatest importance,
which is the heart and spirit way

May the seasons 
give you the power
to make changes
for all good reasons
