Christmas miracles come in so many ways. This poem is about one such miracle.
May you find your own miracles, this holiday season.
A long time ago, where the sand met the sea
A true Christmas miracle happened to be
For there, near a rock groin, nestled in the sand
Was a tiny kitten; the size of a hand
A light colored tabby, like many before
So little and yet, with so much life in store
Her tiny heart pounded the words of a prayer
In hopes that, one day, someone would find her there.
The kitten was born when the harvest moon shone
Soon after, her mother left her there, alone
A stray cat with other babies needing care
This abandoned runt found its own way to fare
With odds stacked against her, she scavenged for fish
Or anything else that could become a dish
Her malnourished heart had so much love to give
And that sense of love brought her the will to live.
The beautiful feline could have scoffed and seethed
But, deep within her soul, the kitten believed
One bright coastal sunrise would lead her to love
An answer to her prayers sent to God, above
Then, on Christmas morning, as the north wind blew
The innocent prayers of a kitten came true
When an older woman, out for a brisk walk
Heard the baby mewing, there beside the rock.

|Beautiful write about a Christmas Miracle. Christmas and Miracles seem to go perfectly hand-in-hand this holiday season, don't they?? I know we've had some; we had a good one last year. Got a huge financial blessing and food, which was one of the things we sorely needed! God was good to us last year, but the biggest miracle of all was that I got out of the hospital in time to celebrate Christmas with my sister and friends! I was weak, but oh, so glad to be home!
(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Burleson, Karen Lynn. :D
I have a hunch this Christmas will be full of even more Miracles! :)
