seven today
my wee baby
bouncing
with dark hair and rose buds for cheeks

today my wee
is 7
longety leggity creature
with big blue beautiful eyes
full
of curiousity
wonder

before the birth
palm sunday
born with the palm of her hand to her head

a long labour
i hugged trees
and couldn't cross the light
because it was red in between the go go of contractions

today seven
a belle of the ball
a computer wizard
a friend
a daughter
a wonderful wonderful
Bea
Beatrix
b
b lee

bumble
stumble
grow
cry
laugh
sob

who knew
the wonders
that this
"bringer of gladness"
would bring

from tree hugging
to dreams in which i knew it was she
just pink and abstract and swirling

to the little girl i saw
before you where born
beside j

standing
knowing
you would come to visit me

thank you
thank you
thank you
