I see this as God's hands cradling a child before he or she is born


Cradled in the hands of God
Each babe aborning lies
Whispering soft and low
Soothing pre-birth cries

Love all, young one, God imparts
Be free in all you do
Love thy father and mother
For they will love you too

Be gentle in your dealings
With those who have less
And I will surely see that
Your life, I will bless

Give your heart freely
Give your hand to any man
And you will be, my child,
As close to me as you can

Divinely inspired verse Lady deVine, which is befitting your talent with words.

 Now and forever, my heart hears ~one voice~.

Very well done, and you know when I looked at the picture the first thing that came to my mind was the hands of God holding this child. You've written my thoughts as well!  Great Devine!

there is peace.
Where there is peace,
there is GOD.
Where there is GOD,
there is no need.

Both the picture and the poem were exquisite.  Mine eyes are misted ...

PDV: I'm running out of expressions with you...but I totally agree, as always..

 Yes, I admit your general rule. That every poet is a fool:
But I myself may serve to show it. That every fool is not a poet.

Wow, The hands of 'The Maker'..The analogy does much justice to the picture. So does the poem.

A challenge well met. Thanks for the read PDV
