New Life


In the quiet of beginning comes growing
delight. This nameless new life is still yet
a small idea – though it implies giant views
which belie its minute, cellular origins.

Chemistry facilitates deeds as old as people;
changes escalate, cells divide exponentially.
New insights grow out of bright dreams into
consuming light. A thought is truly born.

Days abide until eyes share size and weight
of mind’s vision – pathways easily walked;
hearts join, engendering this child’s being in
purest thoughts. We await your greeting.
