a long ride

is the child coincidental?

to  the deepest moment of love ..maybe lust!

the curled toes

the tightly shut eyes

the pursed lips

churns your blood with a warmth

deeper than you have ever embraced

chills your spine with a current

stronger than any you have ever survived

in a daze

you walk across the threshold

and into the door of parenthood

The sign reads –

“buckle up! it’s an amazing long ride”

One thought on “a long ride

  1. Long Ride- contains also shades of metaphysical poetry-the genre not much in use these days
    It is a beautiful expression of parenthood which most of us feel but are not able to express

    This long ride has indeed many bumps which needs buckling up so that you are able to enjoy the ride despite all ups and downs Overall it is indeged a emotional pleasant ride
    God Bless the children
