I'm Walt. And I'm Marie Elena.
This is the collaboration of two kindred spirits; partners in rhyme;
"the best friends we've never met."

PRINTS (Sophie's Sonnet)

A woman knows instinctively, it seems,
Which moments will leave prints upon her soul.
Her future life weaves fabric through her dreams
And writes upon her heart, as though a scroll.

A woman thinks she knows what to expect
From pioneering moments in her world -
Anticipation of events’ effects,
And how her heart will feel as they’re unfurled.

Yet, there was I, as wholly unprepared
As if I’d never given you a thought.
My heart and hub were all-at-once ensnared –
I would convey in words, yet I cannot.

Sophia Rose: a gift from God above –
New life. New breath. New gift. New print. New love.

  1. Aw, our dear Marie Marie, this is so purty (and so is baby Sophia, of course). I got all teary eyed, reading it.

    I wonder when your feet are going to start touching the ground again....

  2. A veritable rhyming couplet--Grandma & Grand-dau!
    Great photo Marie Elena!

    Happy days, All!

  3. Marie - this is beautiful! What a gift for little Sophie when she is older!

  4. Thank you, gals! She sure is an inspiration.

  5. Now I'm teary eyed too. That is so lovely, Marie. *sniff* Just in time for spring, Sophia!

  6. Absolutely beautiful! Just like little Sophie and her nonna Marie.

  7. Thank yo uso much, Peppermint, Boo, and Craft! These comments out here never cease to humble me.

    Cyber hugs just don't seem to cut it sometimes.

  8. What a wonderful poem Marie! Sophie is just beautiful! This poem blessed my heart,thank you.

    What a joy it is to share in such wonderful "heart" moments.


  9. Thank you so much, Melissa!

    I wish you all God's best with your new book. I'm serious about wanting your autograph, once my copy arrives. I can't wait to read it to my Little Sophie Sunshine. =)
