Magpie Tales #45: Love At First Sight...

Photo by Tess Kincaid
Another Magpie Tale


Precious and sacred
Mother and child,
my life's longing,
calling to her,
beckoning,
wishing,
hoping,
praying,
holding, rubbing
my protruding belly.
 Womb dreams,
psychic visions
of an unborn face.
Feeling alive,
destined,
planning.
Willing to take
all discomfort
and pain
to count ten fingers
and ten toes.
Love at first sight
weeping with a smile,
strong, instant
connections,
protecting,
remembering,
cherishing,
joyful exhaustion.
Knowing.
Feeling
a tiny hand
on my breast,
that sweet smell
of a newborn
fed
satisfied
growing
all from me...
Thanking God.
Overwhelmed with Love,
spilling over
filling my life.
Each day
a precious adventure
together.
Babies
Toddlers
Even years
Odd years
Adolescence
Pre-teen
Teenager
Young woman
Woman
Mother
Oh, my precious daughters,
the gratitude
to hold
and share
another generation...
Mother and child
precious and sacred...
