God is in her rocking chair,
wood creaking as she hums back and forth.
I want to climb onto her sun-warmed lap,
breathe in the smell of air dried dresses,
May breezes caught in her floral-print skirt.
Her hands are gentle as they stroke my hair,
her knitting going still when I rest my head
on her knees where her yarn was.
She holds me as I cry.
Because God has felt like a mother to me lately. <3

I dig this, a lot.
It reminds me of my grandma though. Must be the knitting and floral-print.

Thanks! It does have a grandmotherly feel to it, doesn't it? I think part of that is because the nature of God is ancient. But it can also be the knitting and floral print. ;)

I tend to side with the knitting and floral print argument, lol, but you can't argue that God is ancient. ;)

I like the thought of God in female form. Mmmm... I can feel the warm sun and almost feel the gentle hands. Very nice :)

I don't mean to mass-favorite, but these last three are really beautiful.

Thank you so much! :love: Mass faving doesn't bother me, it means that someone appreciates the work that I've done, and happen to be looking at several pieces over any given amount of time! :)

Thanks for the faves!
