A sun is born

This boy begins to become a man

His face so long, his voice so deep

His mind expands, reaching farther

Than the stars but still contained within

An element of a boy remains

I see in his ever narrowing face

The chubby cheeks, the dark eyes

That blinked at me for the first time

The moment we met, mother and child

From the water inside where tide is a heartbeat

The darkness home to a growing sun

The universe gave me an unopened gift

A lifelong exploration of a soul

In anger and joy and grief and love

As the stars wheeled by in their celestial orbits

And a new universe revealed itself
