(a sedoka)

Rather than a title, Sharon offered this photo and the poem type “sedoka”. I’ve never written a sedoka before! I quite like the turnaround aspect.

(woman smiling at a baby in her arms; the baby smiles back)

She gazes upon
This tiny creature in arms
Now the center of her world

Her own willing breath
Drawn fast into steady lungs
To soon grow strong to leave her
