Haiku 3

Little eager mouth
eyes tipped upward, demanding
hand gripping my breast

Moment of focus
Anxiousness turns to relief
Finally begins

Everything I have
I give, this sweet baby the
template of my joy

Ritual ends with
flushed cheeks and audible sigh
heavy-lidded bliss

Oh, Sciencemama, this is just beautiful.

I can see the hidden English major in your blog. You've set a high bar for haikius today.

This is amazing. It's the most evocative description of breast-feeding that I think I've ever read.
