Delights

One of her favorite delights,
to unswaddle a newborn
pull off those booties
and get some sweet foot sugar

time was obliged to stand still
as the grandest of mothers
filled the universe with Love
measuring a miniature miracle
of bone and sinew
blood and skin

patiently waiting to grow
and begin it’s own fragile walk
through this beautiful dangerous
world always carrying her blessing
