Life

From the seed divided,
to exist in a sea,
sustaining,
nurturing, warming,
protecting,
what is delicate life.

Until thrust into the light
screaming in shock,
cold,
unprotected,
forced to inhale first
breath of life,
a new comforting sea,
enveloping,
setting free.

First vision
a beautiful sight,
blurred and unfocused,
stares into the memorized face
of dreams,
as gentle hands 
impress, warm, caress,
soft textured folds.

Tears,
warm the face,
ears, attune
to soothing vibrations,
breathing deep, 
inhaling wonderful fragrances,
familiar,
environment different,
yet the same,
from first division,
imprinted heartbeat,
the bond of life.
