For Mama T., my best friend.

a great weight seizes her in clutching fingers
and throws her down
in agony:
gravid with absolute concentration, she
s q e e z e s life from
between her thighs:
strangers who've always known each other regard
the other with
understanding eyes:
after months of taking from her everything
that she had, the
proof's in her arms:
all's forgiven as she holds him to her breast ...
welcome to the
world, little one.

(c) 2006, Karla Dorman.

How very beautiful Karla. You've captured the early moments of Motherhood so very well! And the photo is gorgeous too. Bravo! Michelle

From three shades of red and purple pain to the pale bloom of absolute love and joy. Yes, it was all worth it--the nausea, backaches, numbness & tingling in the extremities, toxemia, hemmoroids, headaches, swollen feet and two weeks of Braxton-Hicks
pre-labor pains and 12 hours of real labor, lol! Birth is never easy, in any life or endeavor, but what a reward. Both my babies were truly miracles. Absolutely beautiful write and pic, Karla!

Karla this is a glorious poem, one of your best, the insight is so special! It will deeply move every mother especially! Brava!

Reviewed by Carmen Ruggero 3/16/2006
You're so right! The moment that baby is in our arms, we don't even remember being pregnant. Yes babies are a healing miracle. And then the're four and six and twelve and twenty, and we still forgive them. There is no other bond like that of a mother and child.

What a marvelous description, and what a marvelous poem, Karla.

This is a sensational composition, comprising five parts, subtlely broken up by Jerry's famous semi colons...lols
The joys and agonies of motherhood epitomised very cleverly !
Reviewed by Ed Matlack 3/16/2006
After nine months of sometimes insanity, sometimes pleasure, sometimes depression it all comes down to that one moment when the kid pops out and has NOT got horns or a tail...he is normal, but wait till he gets into his teens...;) Ed
