Home Stretch

new understanding why birds gather twigs

or fluff lilting on the air

expectant mothers not so different instincts

purge, organize and clean

will everything be ready in time?

~

silly words for practice contractions:

Braxton Hicks

irregular, uncomfortable inflate then deflate

~

ten thousand stray thoughts and fears

big transition looming

one precious being relying on me for its survival

overwhelmed.

~

months race by into weeks

weeks grow closer to a date

Little One, when will you arrive?

a mother waits at the home stretch
