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


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




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
