Maggie's Poem

A moment of silence
Sun blazing through the kitchen window
My newborn son and I still naked
A new world of hope was born at home in the woods in the early morn
A reassuring drip leaks from my breast as my son rests nestled on my chest
The world may spin, but ours stands still as we share beads of sweat by the window sill
A few leaves flutter through the naked branches as we contemplate all of life's chances
Through a maze of planetary and universal passes we have come together through the masses
Together we sit basked in sun
A moment of silence
