Listening In

Was it an elbow or a knee, we wonder.
There! She's kicked again! Turning
in her sleep, spelling out her dreams,
in morse, inside you.


  1. Very sweet and succinct, and as a relatively new father, I know exactly what you mean :)

  2. A wonderful little piece. Thanks for letting us "listen in" to your own listening. "spelling out her dreams,
    in morse" is a wonderful line, BTW.

  3. It is awesome is in the delivery room, looking at the heart monitor tracking two beats, mother's and baby's, one inside the other. It is absolutely amazing.

  4. A small, perfect miracle

  5. Describes a miraculous moment with gentleness and wonder. Makes me remember my own.
