Birth

A piece of light
A living breath

Beneath heaven
Life is happening
The heartbeat warms
When life
Is imparted

Time is not important
Exploding tiny cycle
The words form
In fullness
The gift

A source of beauty
A hallowed soul

Child of the divine

Sealed with the Spirit
Bestowed with love.

  8. Giving birth is one of woman's most generous acts ... it is such a powerful and fulfilling experience. Knowing that you have nurtured that life and welcomed that personality that begins to develop the moment you look at each other and begin to interact ... momentous, indeed!
