This First Moment

The agonising storm subsides

Instantly gone from memory

Excitement floats on the periphery

Swirling, fussing, smiling, clucking

At the core, the newest bond

Calm and serene

Warm perfection, closely cradled

This first moment

The world melting away

Never more clear, never more flawless

Endless possibility, brimming with hope

Connected at heart and soul

Eyes locked

Mother and son.
