The Blossom

In the depths of my belly I knew you were there

long before lineal colour declared

That miraculous moment you fused into life

stirred a sentience in me deep inside

Cloistered and curled in the warmth of my womb

I felt you move and grow and then burst into bloom

In a crimson blur your petals unfurled

penetrating through me as you entered the world

Emotions euphoric and profoundly in awe

on that extraordinary day that my daughter was born

This is wonderful! I hope you share this with your daughter one day and she is delighted with the intensity of such beautiful work, and obvious love.

Voted up and beautiful.
