The Gift of a Grandchild

Today’s poetry challenge is to write an acrostic, where the first letters of each line themselves make a message. The poem must be about a gift and must include a simile.

Gift of a Grandchild

Tiny fingers furled like a new rosebud

Hair like wisps of black thistledown

Angel mouth pursed waiting for the first taste of milk

Nestled in your mother’s loving arms

Knit together by a Master Craftsman.

You are the fulfillment of nine month’s hopes and ¬†dreams

Only six hours old yet already part of the family

Under the gift wrapping of hospital blankets

God, the giver of all good gifts

Omnipotent Creator of life and love

Divine Author of the greatest story ever told.

First Grandaughter
