i am remembering 6 years ago i was
sliding in the tub for one more soak
before we went to the hospital
i wanted to stay home as long as possible
jen was cleaning the kitchen
made us noodle soup and peeled clemetines
the waves of labor eased in the heat
then the gentle pop came
my own water broke
and there was barely time
to make it to the hospital
oh, the rush
the thrill of birthing
after the pain of miscarriage
the learning it was…and is.
so today we honor this life
with baby sisters glad to play in kindergarten
with candy delivered
happy birthday, dear micah,
happy birthday to you
i am humbled and grounded
in this journey of mothering
my now six year old sweet boy
