Poems for a Beloved Son

The Blessing

Anticipating the birth of a son

tree arms and I

we lift the moon

rain treading life

within my womb

benediction, offering

exchanged

while you and I and He

within me stirs

growing belly deep

Seeing the World Anew

Through the Eyes of a Son

same space

shelters us both

shakes us both

with eager will to live

kicking

striving

yielding

in this whirling

as though we remember

when we were one and the same

I circle you with laughter

I thrive inside your glee

you  – the one I birthed

now you birth me
