! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! Circle of Life*

It felt like a sparrow
in my rugby-gloved hands
this lighter than whisper breath
in my trembling hand
I rummaged drawers of my mind
I struggled with the accounts with God
To see one right entry
That shifted balance of divinity
In my pan …
Love this uneven divinity
And more than that love myself
For loving you

* took me 9 ½ years to articulate this feeling; that gripped me when I held my firstborn for first time
