We could never guess

beauty from chaos

tiny little bundle, you

your skin delicately pink
blanketing your warmth
eyes of awe

your beautiful lashes and tiny hands
little noises
the very veins in your eyelids

are melodic

small translucent ribcage

your breath
is bigger than you

and God pours life
between your fingertips

you hold your mother's skin

your purpose here
is bigger than our imagination
we could never guess

but maybe someday

when we dance
through the universe

we will know


Dedicated to little Kayleigh, whose story I've been following breathlessly over the past few days. She has already touched my life, and she's changed the world in ways that we might never even guess at until we see the God who sustains her face-to-face. He has plans for her that exceed our imagination. Kayleigh is truly a miracle; please keep her in your heart today.

I'm Oksana—Communication major, shutterbug, occasional blogger, incessant doodler, graphic design geek, and writer of sentimental prose. I am quite content to spend an afternoon with a pencil, a few blank Moleskine pages, and a playlist of indie folk. I love musical theatre, black-&-white movies, and Eastern European illustration. Conversations with strangers make my day. When it rains, I make a beeline for my mug of green tea and stack of 19th-century fiction. I'm vegetarian about 98% of the time. I'm extremely awkward and rather nerdy. I love the sea. My name means 'hosanna' and I'm having the time of my life living to praise the One who set me free.
