FIVE CREATURES ON THIS COUCH by Amy Hilgendorf

Five creatures on this couch.
Four of us long together,
Changing, reshaping, but together just the same.
One of us newly joining.

Does she know the four beings that surround her?

Does she hear the audible affection
Curled beside her?
Does she sense the calm comfort
Just beyond her?

Does she feel her Daddy’s hand
Gently atop her?
A touch still uncertain;
A powerful nurturance stronger each day.
He longs to reach her skin-to-skin.

Does she know this heart above her?
Sharing each beat,
Its volume, its vitality, its vulnerability,
With her.

She does.

Five of us long together.
