Bonnie Flaman

About this Christian Poet:
Bonnie Flaman lives in Regina, Saskatchewan with her husband and four children. Writing has been a powerful expression for her from age nine. Life has been rich and busy and she had planned to put off publication until her children were older. Through a series of losses, she found writing poems helped her move through grief. She writes to find clarity, find herself and to hear God's voice. Part of the healing writing brings to her life is through connection with others, as a result of that she is now pursuing being published.

David

I always wanted a brother
now I find you

birthed
from amniotic waters
wailing

fears cast down
we triumph
over rocks cast by bullies
more giants to conquer

drawn back to water
sink to murky bottom
weighted by heavy stones
embedded in our beating hearts

like you
as the woman in the crowd
all that’s left
is the touch of His robe

we rise up
and sing His praises
even in darkness
the silent song
we move to
music, psalms
sweeter than
the sound of
water.
