Two eyes met, attraction sparked.
Sexy, confident, secure
Two hearts met intention formed
Two lives merged, married
Embraced and celebrated
Differences arose, got resolved…. or not
A small line on a stick changed colour
The new life coming up became more and more real
Plans began – would they be?
The child was born
The heart burst wide open
The child continued to be
starry dreams stood on stake
Choices swayed in the wind, uncertainties trembled on melting edges
would my baby pay the price of this unthinking ignorance?
The secure heart has this gaping hole of vulnerability and glorious fragility marches forward with purpose.
