Poems of Motherhood | April 2019







4/3/2019

A new Poppy
Blooming in my belly




4/6/2019

You looked back
to see if I was following you
caught my eye
then quickened your pace
I teased you
caught you up in fits of giggles

4/7/2019

I love watching you and Daddy
the way you choose him
feel safe with him
wave goodbye when he steps into the next room



4/8/2019

Those huffy breaths you take through your nose
I have no idea where your thousands of idiosyncrasies came from
but I love them
my snowflake girl

4/10/2019

I've grown comfortable
with silence
just the sound of you
banging blocks together
yelling "MOM" when something isn't quite right
the silence of motherhood




4/11/2019

"Yes"
"Yesh"
you're trying to speak
you say it for the joy of it
for the way it forms in your mouth
I hope you remember that joy
when you read these poems

4/13/2019

I love that it's me you reach for
when you're sad or hurt
that in these moments
you love me
as fiercely
as I love you




4/20/2019

You didn't really understand the point
eggs
buckets
wandering the grass in a new dress that you'd normally only wear on Sunday
but the wonder was back for me
watching your newness in the grass this morning

4/23/2019

You woke up from your nap
sat in my arms while I stroked your hair away from your face
you leaned your head into my hand
it was such a small moment
but it meant a lot to me

4/27/2019

You cried
for apparently no reason
it broke my Mama heart
I held you
prayed for you
Daddy and I both did
until you felt better

4/28/2019

I started patting your tummy
to distract you from your least favorite part of bedtime
when we change you
you laughed
patted your tummy every time I stopped
until we laid you down to sleep

4/29/2019

You walked around
with a stack of rubber banded business cards to your ear
for half an hour


Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoyed them :) Motherhood really has been so wonderful for me in so many ways, but these poems are one of the best ways I think.
