Listening with new ears


with COLIN (aged14 months)



High spaces, free and contained –

embraces, sacred and profane.


Each moment a change;

change the instant

start anew.


Fresh breezes, shrill streams

chimes ringing –


the baby smiles –

he shares

none of my amazement;


constantly amazed

his is affirmation.

He laughs, picks up a new toy.


I relax –

immersed in the present.



free and contained.
