This is the last of the Daniel poems. Apparently once the morning sickness set it, my creative juices stopped!

The Miracle

We witnessed a miracle today.
You grew:
From a dream
To a hope
To a dash of DNA.
From a speck of something spectacular
To a grain of rice
To a sweet pea.
We saw your first picture today.
And you are beautiful.
It’s been five weeks and four days
Since God first began knitting you together in my womb
And it will be many more weeks
And many more days
Til you leave my womb for our waiting arms.
But you are coming
And we will wait.
Because today we saw you
Just a tiny dot,
A miracle in black and white.
