Lost Angels ~ MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie

Prompt #110 “Meraki”7 June 2015

From MLMM’s description:

“This week I want you to share a poem, drawing, story, photo, sculpture, etc that you’ve put your soul into creating. Something that touches on the deepest most vulnerable parts of yourself. Something raw and exposing. It need not be something new or something created specifically for this challenge. It might be your most accomplished piece of work or it might be a piece that you have never shared before. Maybe it makes no sense to anyone other than you or maybe it has gotten a lot of positive publicity. Maybe you sit down right now, in this moment and pour your guts out. Show us what you’re made of!”


Lost Angels

Although I never had the chance to gaze upon your tiny face
I’ve often felt your too short existence blessed my life with grace
I never knew the sweet joy of your tiny fingers wrapped round mine
Never counted each of your tiny toes, or kissed your hair so downy fine
But I often imagine that somewhere better, you can look down and see
And that you know, my sweet lost angel, you are still precious to me

  1. Wow, Karin – raw, exposing, vulnerable. You hit all of the requirements of this prompt and then some. Very touching and revealing of your sweet heart. 🙂


  2. Beautiful and poignant poem. A glimpse at the reflection of lost little angels only a mother can feel or express. The depth of your ability to capture so many emotions and give them life often leaves me speechless.


  3. The authenticity and courage with which you have shared from a place of raw vulnerability….whoa…..it connects straight to the deepest place in the reader. Thank you for sharing so beautifully from such a deeply personal place of pain and loss.
