And so you have arrived,
like an angel descended from heaven,
carrying a message forth from the Gods.

I gave up decadence
to keep you safe from harm.

And here you are nothing but
the purest,
most beautiful miracle,
my life I give to you.
Emotions in motion
a sea of tranquil devotion.

Day turns into night
and night turns into day
as my sprout blooms
I lead the way..

He does look cherubic. I have a darling image in my mind of little sprouts, like chicks, following the momma tuft all around the garden. Lead on, oh flower; lead on.

Enjoyed the write. --Charlie
