2023 AWAKENING xiii

  1. using her fingers
    concerned mum searches
    for a slight fever
  2. lingering summer heat
    hazy memories
    of baby’s fever
  3. papa’s lullaby
    changing its timbre…
    skin-chilling air
  4. crawling baby
    shrinks its shadow
    hazy moon
  5. day moon
    so many shapes
    of nappies
  6. autumn chill…
    singing mother speaks
    in her mother’s tongue
  7. winter fog last photo of my youth
  8. sleeping newborn
    stays in my arms
    day moon
  9. feeding spoon
    the full moon’s
    eternal smile
  10. soup spoon —
    sunlight seeps into
    my bones
