Topic: Poem for my children

For Sarah and Luke

Beating heart
Flutter, Quiver
Movement at last
Heart burn
Weight gain
Stretching, Inside and Out
Feeling knees and elbows

Tired, Insomnia
Swollen feet
Time seems halted
Rush Rush
Speed it up
Constriction, Pain
Over and Above

Push, Shove
So Slowly, Deliberate
Gruelling, Challenging
Tired, Dead Beat
Energy Boost, Release

Screaming, Lungs fill
Wet, Slippery
5 Toes, 5 Fingers
On my chest
Warm, Tiny
Kicking, Flailing
Helpless, Fighter

Delight, Fearsome
Confused, Bewildered
Motherly Instinct
Protect, Assist, Give
Warm mouth
Cold Nipple
Suckling, Life Milk
Bonding, Astonished

Diapers, Dummies
Sitting, Crawling
Babbling, Drooling
Smiles leave me Soaring
First Tooth, Chewing motion
First steps unsteady
Running, Climbing
Touching, Tasting

Separation Anxiety
Grazed knees
Stubbed toes
Solace in Mum

Be more less concerned with your outward appearance and more concerned about your character, for that is what defines you. www,
