My little one, if I forgot your face –
If your chubby cheeks faded from my view –
If death snatched your sweet brown eyes – erased
From time and from beneath the sky’s blue hue,
What would I do? How would I cope with that?
I’m scared that all I’d have to hold you near
In memory would be your epitaph
Inscribed across my broken heart with tears.
But then…the starflowers would appear,
And I would hear your giggle echoing
Around me as you plucked one and held it near
Your face, smiling at its star-like twinkling.
And then I’d remember; eternity
Will cradle you in star-strung memory.
A founding member of The Cultivating Project, Christina has been fascinated by beauty her whole life and continues to marvel at the way it leads our hearts straight to our Creator. Christina pursues God’s goodness through a range of creative endeavors, from creating magical parties, crafting a fine-tuned sonnet, laboring devotedly to nurture a garden in the dismal soils of the Rocky Mountain foothills, deftly wrangling words into fine essays, and cultivating a palette for the good, true, and beautiful in her two little sprites. She and her husband Brian are the founders of the Anselm Society based in Colorado Springs, whose mission and calling is a renaissance of the Christian Imagination. She serves as the Director of the Anselm Society Arts Guild and her creative work can be found at LiveBeautiful.today and on IG.
