poems gigs misc. why don't you EMdC home
Baby Haiku

January
warm inside the womb
the boy grows smooth and rounded
breathing deep winter

February
here as buds fill out
you too are part of this life
& spring sings your song

March
that bump is quite huge
with a gurgles, wriggles and
a life of its own

April
stories you've both heard
& births you've both imagined
'it's coming yet', it's ...

May
oh, the may day joy!
beautiful beautiful boy,
welcome to the world!

June
gazing and blinking
beauty which is in your face
& light in your heart

July
subtleties of sound
you learn whispered syllables
silence and volume

August
bigger and bigger
this guy is something like
twice the size he was!

September
see him reach around
roll around recognising
patterns in his world

October
smelling so sweetly
in soft, silky, supple skin
luxurious sleep

November
we hold each other
stretch our fingers & our arms
giving, not grasping

December
first Christmas, bright lights
he's dazzled and dazzling
a joy to behold!
