Beginning the Evening Blogging--With A Poem


Dedicated with great admiration and gratitude to those in the forefront of those who support the sanctity of human life.


Soon they all say.
It is so soon too.

Soon say the doctors
with the big spoons.
Soon momma says.
They nod their heads.
Smoothely the mound of her
belly moves--so slowly.

Is the music playing
says momma.
The music is playing.

The doctors play
with the shiny spoons.
The light
inside is warm
and dark.

Soon the slide will speed me
out to momma. Soon in
all the quiet.

Momma's belly

O momma, I say
as the slide moves me.
Is the music playing
momma. Inside
she says, soon soon.
