Imagined Spaces

For my children yet unborn, I have dreamed a place for you with my soul.

I have formed a strong foundation out of my very being and furnished it with the essence of all I believe to be good and true. And so I wish for you:


                that you may know your starting point and be able to find your place of rest when you need it.


                that you may be able to hold the sweet and the acrid in equal measure: thereby being able to taste the learning and the blessing of each for yourself.


                that you may be excited by all the possibilities within yourself and the world about you. And that you may find the courage to follow where they lead so that in time, you come to know the revelation of having lived your dreams.


                that you may never fear solitude – or yourself – when it matters. That you may learn to move through this world like tall grass: feeling it, knowing it and loving it in a way that sustains and enriches you beyond measure.


                that you may have a worthy companion to your journeys; and know the joy of sharing your experiences with those who will recognise the sentiment and celebrate all the person you are!
And o my children, though we are yet to meet, I keep this space for you.
I can only give of what I am and pray that I have strength enough to let you be all that you could be.
Dedication: For all the children I have loved and raised; and those I may yet birth and raise.
And in answer to the motherhood question that haunts me from time to time.

SO TELL ME: What do you think of this piece?

  • Did it engage you?
  • Does the meaning come across? Are there any images or lines you don’t understand or find unclear?
  • Are there obvious errors in spelling, punctuation or grammar?
  • Do you have any suggestions for revision?

Please be brutally honest in your assessments – good, bad or indifferent.
I don’t scare easily; and I really do want to hear what YOU have to say about my work.

Many thanks in advance for your time and your criticism.
