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:
irregular, uncomfortable inflate then deflate
ten thousand stray thoughts and fears
big transition looming
one precious being relying on me for its survival
months race by into weeks
weeks grow closer to a date
Little One, when will you arrive?
a mother waits at the home stretch
