Nature’s magic wand…

To two beautiful boys, for giving me this most beautiful and magical gift of nature..

He kicks me with his tiny legs
Or I wonder if its his hands
He moves around oh so often
Creating turmoils inside my belly
I see him on a screen
They point out his face
Look his eyes, this is hair,
See the nose, see the legs
All I see are the bumps on my belly
Rising and falling in rapid succession
I point here and I point there
And soon he’s gone back to his deep sleep
I wait and I wait.. to see his tiny arms
They tell me, today, tomorrow, next week
Anxiousness and curiosity get the best of me
I wait and I wait.. till I feel the first anguish of pain
The pains come, the pains go
I walk, I lie, I shower but still I wait
Minutes pass, hours pass, a day passed
I see the head, I hear someone say

They wait like me with anxious breath
Everything a standstill for a moment
The next I hear, ‘Here he is, he’s so cute’

I hear the wail, to finally see him
the most beautiful thing,
the most magical being
I hold the bundle in my arms
I plant a kiss on the forehead
He slowly opens his eyes
Looks intently at my face,
As if he knew me all along
But this is so new to me
This miracle of nature, finally in my arms!!

    wonderful transformation of motherhood for the past present and the future.
    the bundle which gave me new life 30 years back has been this moon; who shines fully in black and white in a month; eventhough she is cooling the whole world.
