to be a speck within my mother’s womb.
I grow; become amazing, graceful form
from outer space to other places soon.
and reaching for my mouth remaining mum
with gift from other spaces grateful for
that unexpected solace of my thumb.
she rocks my body; cradled as I sleep.
I hear her beating heart as mine is small;
remember all her songs that I must keep.
I’m filled with awesome wonder far from home.
