On February 1st, 2008, Canvas of Life Poem, my inexperienced niece leaves her baby girl to be raised by me, with an empty house, and an open heart I give Bianca a home.
Now ten years later I’m here to write this into a poem. One can affect the future of children, too many are left to fend for themselves, as a foster mom, and mother, nurturing a child from an infant to a young girl is challenging and rewarding at the same time. But, I wouldn’t trade it for a second. Read Canvas of Life Poem below

Canvas of Life Poem
Life set you reaching as a paintbrush.
The physician turned your breath inside out.
Paint its place upon a canvas.
Our colors stream, brilliantly showing your appearance.
New paint. In a stuffy art museum, your rawness
articulate love. We stare square vividly as murals.
I’m no more your auntie
Then a brush that blends a wind to slow,
through rain clouds.
Every morning your butterfly kisses
fluttering among round yellow daisies. I watch to see:
A stirring branch moves in my eye.
One whimper and I rise from bed, tousled-hair and green
in my fuzzy bathrobe.
Your arms flail openly winged as a baby bird. The window rectangular
Brightens and engulfs black night. And now you try
Your songbird song;
The lyrics grow like a flowering rosebud.
