Little One

c2012-08-05_7018

Infant’s cheeks

soft as dove’s wing,

rosy blush of sunset.

Gentle breath…

 

in out, in out, in out.

 

Slumber my little ones

no cares this day.

Bring stillness to my

tender heart,

 

I whisper, “I love you.”

 

in small still voice,

“I love you.”

Over at dVerse it’s Quadrille Poetry (only 44 words) and make sure to use the word ‘whisper’. These precious darlings are ages 9 and 4 now. The photo hangs next to my exercise bike encouraging me to stay fit, so I can enjoy these special girls.
