For My Niece, Brand New Today


Dear Morgan,

The world is enormously tragical, but within your brand new

deep wondering eyes, I see all the beauty—

every miracle that is, and ever will be.

What omnipotent being exists

who is pure as a sweet babe fresh from

the womb?

Morgan with immaculate heart,

springtime flows through your veins—

from baby’s breath do the gardens grow.

The world is enormously beautiful.

  1. Babies are Joy & Hope, delivered in that special new baby smell, and reflecting back to us our fragility, trust, and capacity for Love. Enjoy every moment of connecting with the new being, who is our future ❤

  2. ❤️ when I became an auntie, I can honestly say, was the first time I fell head over heals in love. I still have a sweet spot in my heart for my first nephew, who currently is in second year uni!

    1. Thank you. I wanted to hold her–keep her to myself. I have never been a good sharer. Even when my own mother wanted to hold her granddaughter, I cried inside to pass her over. Little Morgan…my beautiful niece. I’m gonna spoil the shit out of her, lol!
