Synchronicities the road signs of life a biography

Madonna with child
Madonna with child
St. Barbara
St. Barbara

Born on a Sunday
on Samhain’s Day
when the veils are thinnest
when they’re almost away

Maria our Lady
the hospital was named
where I then made
my life’s entree

Double Scorpio
triple Snake
loyal to the bone
and not easy to break

After St. Barbara
the school was named
where I played Maria
in the Christmas play

Then I grew up
and fell in love
I married the man
I got pregnant of

When Christmas Day
finally arrived
my firstborn child
came into this life

Maria our Lady
the hospital was named
where he then made
his life’s entree

The midwife assisting
the one who was there
her name was Barbara
she worked with care

After the marriage
came the divorce
but I had my child
so nothing was lost

17 years
went on by
I paid my dues
I lived my life

Then all of a sudden
out of the blue
I got a feeling
clear and true

The longing for
my second son
had arrived
it had begun

I spoke out loud
to the Universe
that I was ready
for the second birth

Born on Imbolg
made on Beltane
and Barbara again
was the midwife’s name

Both my grandmothers
and mother in Dance
are all called Maria
could this really be chance?

Or are they
synchronicities
the road signs of life
for us to read

I have to admit, I wondered if anyone else ever noticed these things in life. I've had quite list of them along the way, and saw it was amazing how that always happens!

My Dad's side of the family is Catholic, so all the women are named either Maria or Theresa and all the men are named Charles-either as a first or middle name. Although Maria is not my legal name I was born with pneumonia and was baptised Maria and given last rights.

About coincidence with names-

I was named after my Grandmother on my mother's side-Flora was quite a popular name for her generation (b. 1917). My last name is Robison. That is R-o-b-i-s-o-n. My Mom wanted to name me after her Mom long before she met Dad. A few months after I was born, my parents were looking at a TV Guide and noticed a movie in which there appeared an actress named Flora R-o-b-s-o-n. Turns out that Dame Flora Robson-no relation though Robson and Robison is the same anscestrial clanwas a British Character Actress who died in 1984.
