With Ease and Gentleness

Trivial as it may seem,
Its complexities are layered enough
To swallow whole

An entire process of
Life creating, bearing, bringing, raising,
Living, learning, knowing life

Began a few hundred days ago.
Only a few more days remain
Between simplicity and a complex

So complex, it could swallow me whole
Yet, it blankets me in
The most life-giving of all

Embraces I've ever known.
And I can't wait to hold it
And breathe with it,

With ease and gentleness
