Pregnancy Announcement

Pregnancy Announcement | Short Poem No. 45

The beauty of a pregnancy announcement. . .

This poem is a silhouette of love.

Two embraced in a moment, lost and free.

He gives a kiss as she looks from above.

Because now there’s two, but soon will be three.

Worries of struggle, money, parenting,

are gone now in this beautiful moment.

The mother thinks of a song she can sing,

a lullaby to the life that God’s lent.

Soon, there’ll be a cradle, and newborn cries.

as into this place, with worries it’s own,

an infant’s pushed to their new world to rise –

in the arms of parents making a home.

And devotion will keep them together.

Only a true love can make things better.

  1. A side note to this poem – I have been reading Sonnets by Shakespeare lately, and as a challenge to myself I wrote this poem in Shakespearean form. If you want to become a great poet, it pays to learn from the best.
