Ready To Be Born

Nine Months Due (Poem)

Little child within
Curled 
Like a question mark
Who will you become?

Containment 
Of dreams
Promises
The future.

Secret world
Unfolding self
Like petals 
Opening.

Poised
For birth
Flesh surrenders 
To love.

Inhaling
Sweet breath
Soft touch
The scent of YOU.
