Born Blessed (2022 NaPoWriMo #29)

May might be here but I’m still working through the NaPoWriMo – 30 Poems in 30 Days prompts since I discovered them late.

Prompt 29

Write a poem in which you muse on the gifts you’ve received at birth – whether they are actual presents, talents, circumstances, or “curses”.

Born Blessed

Born with nothing but
The cutest of looks
A strong commanding voice
And a mother’s nourishing love.

Born with everything needed
To live
To flourish
And to thrive.

Born blessed.

‘Baby Monty’ – 1973

Be well,



  1. I love the baby picture, Monty! It truly is a blessing to be given what you need to thrive (and not just survive).
