Hello Dolly :)
Your poem is beautiful.
Not only is it well written and beautifully presented (lovely painting, by the way) it is heartfelt.
I'm so glad that you could fly home and be reunited with your family x
Best wishes as always, Debra

That must have been a scare...I am glad your daughter was able to help you. There is one thing about a smartphone, you can get information needed in an instant. Glad you made it home.

Nice artwork choice. This was a wonderful poem. Love from family and friends is the imperative in life as it is a basic. Everything else is seconardy but nice to have as it makes us feel good about ourselves. Good visual imagery. Good rhythm and rhymes. Nice storytelling. Excellent work :)

They don't make things easy for people these days. I'm glad you finally got things resolved and made your flight home. You remind us in your poem of things that we value most but often take for granted--friendly faces, kindnesses from strangers, and the love of family. Those are the things that matter. Lovely expression and rhyme. You don't need that comma after "about" in the first line. judi

Yes indeed, I thank God for both my daughters, they have paid us whatever we sowed into back with interest, they have been an a oasis in a desert, a fountain in a drought, this beautifully written, good parenting proves itself by its fruit, you just got value for love, well done Dolly, blessings Roy

Dolly,
This is a pen to cherish. Familial bonds are strong, and many times they help us.
If this poem was borne out of you trouble flying, it really is told very well.
I like the rhyme and the drawing is beautiful.!
I'm glad you had a safe trip, Dolly.
Good luck with more writing.
Best wishes for the contest,
Cindy

Perfect poem, message and artwork of your lovely daughter.
Congratulations on making it back home and...that was close!

Your poem was a pleasure to read and so well penned with
many important points and examples of what makes for a
good and blessed life.

I enjoyed all of your lines...but, the following stood out to me:

"To feel a certain peace inside, to smell the morning due,
appreciating life outside, and how it can renew.
The presence of a friendly face, the kindness from a stranger,
our faithful celebrations, baby Jesus in a Manger."

Did you intend to use "due" instead of (dew?) in the first line.


Anna

Hello Dolly.

I'm happy for you and for you overcoming the desperate situation you found yourself in. Covid has changes the world, but it did not change who we can depend on in life. Your daughter couldn't wait to help.

Robert

This was so great Dolly. I think in this case it now becomes 'thank goodness I have a daughter'. I can't imagine what the protocol regarding covid now is but I do so agree with you-cursing it with a vengeance. At least you will be home soon, yeaaaa. I did notice one tiny mistake or at least I think it is-the second stanza, end of the first sentence, 'due' should be 'dew'.
