I want to put my arms around that big belly and take a deep breath. Fall asleep beneath it on my leather green couch while my wife reads Ovid. Move too cautiously and she says, "That's OK. You won't hurt it." Rub my hand over it and cuddle it. Put my ear to it and listen to it gurgle. "Feel that?" she asks.
What a complete way to put it into words Maxine, way to put it into words. Beautiful.
Thanks Mama Shujaa...I actually started a written post, then ended up with just the photos.Ted - that writing is beautiful - just beautiful! It needs to be in a poem!
