#MiracleChallenge #7: Week – 7
A protective mist wrapped itself around me
As I attempted a noiseless tip toe step
Along a favorite back country road.
It was beyond the middle of the night.
The stars remained hidden beneath a prestorm
Grouping of an unseen ceiling of
An impenetrable coverage of dense clouds.
Not even the moon, had knowledge of how
To shine it’s way through the thick black mass.
In the direction of the path, I planned to take
A white formation materialized,
Literally, emerged ever so slowly.
Was it a hallucination?
Or perhaps a foggy dream,
As I was asleep in my comfy bed?
It’s eerie glow forged and replaced the blackness.
The form took on female resemblance
Somehow I recognized the visitor, as I watched,
A realization tinge that contained no fear
Engulfed my mind and encompassed my soul .
I recognized the resemblance to my mom
Who had passed over 30 years ago.
Stopped in the center of the dirt road
I pondered the timeliness of this visit.
It’s ghostly apparition like presence
Brought forth forgotten flashed
Memories of previous moments similar.
I recalled it’s manifestations prior,
That had veered me off preset
Destinations of journeys in the past.
By doing so, I had changed my course
And the change had saved me from harm.
At that moment, I understood,
She was there to protect me.
Her appearance was timed
To change my current country stroll
Which would undeniably avert me
From something evil or injurious.
To the left appeared another option
An unknown back route to home.
It became visible amidst
The overhang of arch formed tree limbs
It beckoned me with some
Unknown nurture inspired source.
Created a welcoming dim glow
Which illuminated this unexplored path.
I accepted the unspoken invitation
And scurried along the new gateway.
Somehow I knew it would take me home.
As I moved rapidly along, behind me
The path dispersed and was no more.
Later as I laid in my bed, encompassed
By my bed’s soft billowed comforter,
I knew she had once again protected me.
My mind felt peaceful and comforted
With the remembered knowledge
That I hadn’t nor would ever travel,
through life, unprotected or alone.
