New Life

Countdown began last Tuesday night


Anticipation mounted with each breath. 
Then, passed in the silence. 
Wednesday, no relief-
Tick tocking reverberated.
Thursday's drive brought reflection:


Suddenly, a text pinged.
The car exploded with outbursts of joy!
A visual treasure was revealed.

Friday: new sight, cooing sounds -
instant love.


Saturday, family eagerly gathers.
Baby arrives home.

Sunday, Father's Day pride shines 
as bright as the sunshine.


Words cannot express the joy of new life. 
(Hermann Hesse)

My weekend was filled with many precious moments, so I'm Celebrating This Week with Ruth Ayres and her community of writers, post-weekend. Thank you to all those who surrounded this birth with their thoughts and prayers.
