Love

mother and child

Love

Giddy, rosy cheeked and ripe with child
She laughs, cries, sings
As if she carried the entire universe within her womb

Slender feminine fingers
Caress the orb that is a child
Loving and being loved

Soft tender-hearted mama
Nursing a sweet downy babe
Face baptized in pain, reborn in mother-love

(This poem was originally published by me on Poetry.com and then chosen to be published in Poetry.com’s yearbook. I’ve never seen it, but they tell me it’s there.)
