Sonnet 0301


A pair of female babies gave you me;
Completed family with daughters two;
Expanded twice this motherly tummy:
Twice hued with pink not yet with powder blue.
But out of nowhere came another one;
From science, magic, love and chemistry;
From man came boy- a child that was our son;
A boy so bright he’d rewrite history.
This child you gave who grew but from a seed;
Did take upon himself to win our hearts;
From ovum, love was writ for now to read;
Then horror came, blue-lipped: fear off the charts.

You breathed into his lungs without restraint;
The boy you gave me once, you gave again.
