Watching my first grandson come into the world

I have 7 grandchildren, six boys and one girl. This is how I felt when I watched him coming into the world.


How magnificent to see myself
wrapped in the soft pink skin
of my newborn grandson.
In him I see the dawning sunrise
of hope released in
the squinched blue eyes and tiny fists.
With a squall, he grabs life
and demands his place by his mother,
taking sustenance from her body.
How marvelous to see
the flesh of eternity
bound in the seed of love.
