Sonnet for Georgia

 
Welcome, my darling Georgia Mae McCabe
To a world in lock down and national crisis.
You are precious and loved. Don’t be afraid.
You have Isla, as a best friend and big Sis.
Your lovely little face with peach soft skin,
Button round nose and eyes dark blue;
I wonder if you’ll have the Hacksley chin
And your hair be auburn, as mine was, too.
While grief and doubt and fear were felt
Your Mummy protected you in her womb.
You were born, kicking, and made our hearts melt
Dispelling this world’s perpetual gloom.
See, Springtime flowers in the March sunshine,
And new life brings hope and all will be fine.

I started running 14 years ago to help manage anxiety and depression and found the endorphins helped me in another way...to write my sermons for Sunday.... and then inspiration came for poetry. A Christmas present 2017 was a book by Jo Bell, challenging the reader to write a poem a week for a year. This blog showcases these and other poems composed on the run.
