Earnest

by John S

Having arrived, definitively,

from your origins
as a thought
from far away – your power
to hold us all as newly born,
as something once not, yet now are –
created solely from bonds of love-
you are a certitude, swaddled in assurance.
You shine
and we are radiant.

This week we welcomed our grandson into the world. I am almost speechless in my ability to convey how this impacted me.
