adoring the light

we lie together in bed, baby and i … wee-morning light peeks head through window shutters. aiden stares wide-eyed at the shaft of sunlight… adoring its yellow glow. i look deep into his blue iris, where the shape of the window is reflected… he peers, unblinking, milk-lined lips pursed in thinker pose, enchanted by the dawn.

oh, to be fixated on morning light. to wake, excited by new folds of day. to spend time staring up, hands folded, lips pursed, waiting… for what? perhaps to understand the source of this brightness?

i am learning so much from this tiny human being; how to nurse at the breast of God, to lie await the hind-milk, patiently resting upon parental chest, knowing this is where i’m meant to be. to stare in wonder at colours… to sit still and let head fall, knowing someone will pick me up.

shaft of light, reflect yourself in my eyes today…

    Beautifully written. Sounds like the words of my heart, that I couldn’t put into words, so you did it for me! Hugs.
