Writing 101, Poetry: The Commons , BELOVED

‘Something about the very word “beloved” causes a frisson in us. Out of the people that matter to you, who matters the most? Whom do you love, or whom have you loved more than anyone else? What does the word “beloved” summon up in your imagination? What songs, poems, stories, movies spring to mind? Who is your beloved?’


One look at him
And Life changed forever.
All wrapped up
He was in my arms.
That tiny being
Who pulled my heart strings
Life changed forever.

Life has moved a full circle
Being loved by grandparents
Who made us feel loved.
Now we are grandparents
And beloved is our grandson.
Then a little tiny being
Now a toddler
Who knows we are his to obey
Without question.
Not only we, his grandparents
But also his great-grandparents.

He is far away
But Skype brings us together.
Those moments are precious
Making life wonderful
And beloved.
