Number twenty two

  10th July 2016

New baby grandson born 5th July .
Each new birth is such a huge miracle -  every time.

Welcome To You
Your soft, smooth, brand new skin against my lips
Brings the future to the present and embodies the past.
Your precious, particular baby smell
Finds my nostrils remembering all the other babies 
I could drink it in all day.
Your tiny hands, although fingers long, give promise 
Of the life ahead.
And with you in my arms, cradled 
I am hypnotized by you, by your being.
Welcome to the world little man.
