womanhood

July 14, 2017

(for tim and elise hussey, on the birth of their first child)

in the
blurry
confusion
of your
first breath,
you will
open your eyes
and
instantly focus
on love.
arms will
wrap you
in wonder,
your mother
will bask
in the
miracle
of womanhood,
your father
will paint
colorful creations
on blank canvases
and you will
be unaware
of it all
until
one day,
when your eyes
are blurry with age,
you will
reflect on
these
memories
and create
your own
miracles.
