NEWBORN

The loveliness I felt Embracing newborn June Recalled to heart The raw life essence Attending brand new babes. Three times and three again I’ve been privileged to hold This essence in my arms And inhale the scent of freshly minted life Touch the silken thread of universal being. Treasure beyond all treasure. Three sons then three granddaughters Offered eloquent tastes of hope. As their pliable small bodies and spirits Fit into my own maturing curves And we melted together. All present and accounted for --- Fingers, toes and all parts in between. Naming this presence “miracle” Does trite injustice to what it is. Mouth searching for sustenance Eyes following the light. I plant a thousand kisse
