    In the stillness of the early morning
    before the birds rise and the paper arrives
    my mind has time to think of you.
    I run my hands over my belly
    surprised when you make your presence known
    by beating your heart against my palms
    reminding me of the life i now hold.
    Slow and steady a repititous beat
    could be felt in my cupped hands
    motherland africa you have blessed me
    holding onto the spirit of our little one
    she gives me rhythm and strength to continue
    on this journey with peace and tranquiltity.
    Rhythm like waves can be heard
    if one can lay calm enough to appreciate.
    I fall back into dream
    loving you and the way i feel.

    Awwwwe...Sister Randee

    You've nearly left me speechless and
    completely awe struck with emotions
    flowing...from knowing "that feeling"
    that you speak of...

    How Beautiful....This was a Masterpiece, Dear Poet!

    Khasm and True love - thank you for your words, they always mean so much, but especially now;
    Angelicsage - I thought that during this time i would write so much more and have all these creative ideas, but i didn't until this am, finally feels real I guess.

    This was absolutely beautyfull...

    Sometimes I wished that I could feel that as a mother feels,
    but y'all can have the childbirthing part, that looks painful. :D

    Many blessings upon U, sister.
