  1. Your imagery here is delightful! I am thinking of a favorite comforter that travels around our house, has provided warmth to many and as you suggest, continues to do it’s job without fail. What a wonderful tribute to a blankie!


  2. This made me feel like a kid.

    But what about the most important trait of a proper comforter – protection from the Monster Under The Bed! πŸ˜‰


  3. You reminded me of my grandmother’s velvet bathrobe! It was black or a dark navy blue. I snuggled up under it on a cold night and in my youthful attitude and ignorance, believed it could keep me warm at the North Pole!
    I love that memory. Thank you for starting it! Hugs!!


  4. Never thought of my comforter this way. Absolutely love this poem. I almost want a part of it stitched ONTO my comforter


  5. Just shared your blog on mine 😏 Hope you don’t mind


  6. This poem is a testament of GOOD POETRY. I love it, and I’ve never had a comforter myself. I love the use of your sentence construction, and the personification of the comforter as well. I was left with a smile on my face from such good work! Keep at it

  7. This is absolutely beautiful. I love the exposed sentiment and history behind something as simple as a comforter. I’ll never look at mine the same way again. πŸ™‚

  8. This is just perfect. I couldn’t help but feel nostalgic right along with you.

    So I have to know: what did the Inspiration Comforter look like? πŸ™‚

  10. Charmingly delightful……So rich in metaphor….great imagery. I especially liked these lines:

    ‘If crumbs fell from a snack

    My comforter…

    Would always save them for later.’

  12. I love this. I love this. I love this. Original, complete, practical and tender, and a long overdue tribute to the undersung friend of our resting, retreating, refreshing times of life.
