Elizabeth

baby-22194_1280
It’s as if
the sun spit fire
deep into my heart.

It’s as if
a quaking earth rumbled muscle
and bone and shivered each finger tip.

It’s as if
an ocean gushed in the blood-flow
pumping passion through my veins.

It’s as if
I heard my name and was baptized anew
when Elizabeth first lay upon my chest.

    • Although the picture celebrates well the moment, alas it is not me and Elizabeth pictured. I’m glad you appreciated it, however. Peace and joy!
