Thoughts While Waiting for the Next Contraction

pregnant woman dazzled - February 18, 2015s

author’s note:

No, I’m not expecting any new arrivals.

I’m just trying to look on the bright side of population growth.


THOUGHTS WHILE WAITING FOR THE NEXT CONTRACTION

Almost cruel
to push a child into
this whirling world
of cloud and conflict

but maybe more cruel
not to allow a soul
such a grand opportunity
to grow some more

and cruel to us and it
not to give that spirit
the chance to bring us
just a little more light

as we struggle to find our way
through the storm cloud of conflict.
