dawn’s morning light

heavy dew sparkling on fields made of glass

carrying my babies safe in the womb

a gentle caress from my husband’s sure hand

waiting for twilight to reveal its moon

swimming weightless in azure blue

watching my children grow strong into their own

sensing I love you deep down into the marrow of my bones

touching my daughter’s cheek, velvet soft

hearing my sons’ voices, their inner thoughts

playing with shadows that stretch beyond sight

feeling blessed when we say goodnight
