h-e-l-l-o

wispy blond hair
sleepy blue eyes
chubby pink cheeks
smooshed in close
on mama's belly

his former home

(was it not just his kicks
and sommersaults
that were keeping mom awake?)

here he rests
on home made pillow
now a mama-made bunkbed
as womb-residing baby
taps up, "h-e-l-l-o"
already speaking the magical brother language

while Bubby sleeps unaware
Mama prays and dreams
of best-friend days approaching
