undefined spaces

and when you were born
your birth multiplied
each child in our family reborn as your brother
daddy reborn as your father
i reborn as your mother

my joy lives outside of me
it is wrapped up in
each of my children
in my husband
in our family

the undefined space where boundaries of self and other don’t quite make sense
that is where love resides
that space is what matters
and i feel that so strongly
as i watch you
being kissed
on the nose
by your big brothers

  1. I am a brand new reader to your blog. Congratulations on the birth of your new babe. I live in small town Saskatchewan, Canada and we have yet to see snow yet. My little girl and I are chomping at the bit to make our first snowman.
