The New One

The voice of the New One
unheard
floating silently within the pool of life.
Awakened
with the harshness of cold
strange arrival.
The shock of first pain.

Crying for the familiar
stranger
now to far to comfort
and protect.
Passing through a jungle of arms.
The sting of steely bees.
The pelting of endless cooing!

The New One comes
to rest in the cradle
of Mother’s swaddling arms
at last…
Home.
