NaPoWriMo: Day 8 – Talisman


St. Cecilia in the Shrine of St. Roch, New Orleans


I was given Our Lady of Guadalupe for


I gave her away for cancer.

I was given St. Jude for


I gave him away for a healthy birth.

I was given a fleur de lis for


I gave it away as a reminder of home.

Tokens of friendship


to me, passed on to others.

  1. zouxzoux, a beautiful poem with its sentiments, the best gifts we receive are the ones we share with others. I love the photo. I am digging these shots of your home.
