Touch of a baby’s skin                                                  
Touch and pet a cuddly puppy
Flower’s soft petals
Spring tree buds

Heartfelt, warm hugs
Wet grandchild kisses
Connected – Respected – Loved
Desiring human touch
Natural; longed for
Affirmation of love, desire, and presence

Do you love me?
Do you care?
Do you notice?

One whom I know always loves, always cares. He proclaims, “do not fear, for I am with you. Do  not be dismayed. I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand,” Isaiah 41:10.

His touch is sufficient.


Each week, I join Kate’s Five Minute Friday link – [P.S. I’m #42; page 2].  The rules remain the same, each week write for five minutes, using the prompt  Kate provides, no editing, no overthinking it, just write raw then link up to her blog.

    Beautiful poem… I love the last line… His touch is sufficient. So true. It is more than we can imagine and more than we know to need. Thank you for sharing your creativity.

      Thank you, Peggy. I dabble in poems from time to time. His touch is more than we can imagine and more than we know we need — thank you for those so-true words!

    Lovely words about touch “Connected – Respected – Loved”. We all need connection and especially the Lord’s touch on our life.
