My sister is getting ready to have her baby soon, she's having a baby boy, he's taking his sweet time, she was due last week. I was thinking how it was for an unborn, the quiet, the peace and serenity. It is why he probably chooses to stay where he is! This is what inspired this next poem.

Silence in darkness


space between


secret refuge


linking two


into one


body.


 


Silence in darkness


warm cocoon


forming life


into one


body.


 


Silence in darkness


protective shield


watery world


forming your


uniqueness.


 


Silence in darkness


time approaching


small problem


no more


room!


 


Silence in darkness


illuminated womb


make way


life is


born!

Mary,
My daughter Donna is expecting her fourth child in July! She don't have long to go. I hope your sister has her baby soon. Excellent insight into an unborn baby's world.

Many blessings,
~Linda

Babies do seem to take their own sweat time making their arrival into this world. Who could blame them for wanting to stay in their warm cocoon... Great write Mary!
Hugs, Laura
