Daily Prompt – Radiant


Cradling the newborn, the first time ever,

close to the bosom , snuggling,

words fail to describe the surreal moment

a surge of hormones swirling

as I look at the angelic face

in a trance, my heart melts

tears moisten the eyes,

while lips curve into a smile.

Cascading emotions tangle

euphoria, fear, anxiety , peace,

Β all play together,

Β a life defining moment.

Unconditional love flows

joyous smiles and well being

wished for the tiny bundle of joy

the radiant face of the new mother

narrates an overwhelming, yet contented tale!

  1. Your poem paints such a beautiful picture. When they are in our hands, we wait for them to grow, to see the person they will become and when they are grown, we miss the times we once held them. And we miss the joy of the moment captured by your poem. Lovely!
