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 somewhere deep inside.
Cloistered and curled in the warmth of my womb
I felt you grow and unfurl and then burst into bloom.
In a crimson blur your petals untwined
the pain of the blossom intensly sublime.
Palpable pain paled by your beauty
and the wonder of your being penetrating through me.
Emotions euphoric and profoundly in awe
on that extraordinary day that my daughter was born.
