A Woman Awaiting Child - Birth - Poem by indira babbellapati

Wonder of creation
Gift-wrapped
A pink ribbon
Around the thread-bare belly…

The little girl stood
In wonder and awe

Of ethereal grandeur
Of divine architecture
Inimitable
Secure
Warm

Found nowhere else
On earth or in heaven

I once lived there
I once housed you there,
My little one, she whispered

Let’s wait for Him to unwrap…

Two pair of eyes reflected
Their glint in each other’s…
