    ooo..I like the way you entered this world... many possibilities... good ones and bad ones. To bad the doors don't come with labels.... always~ LINDA

    I think even with labels the curiosity of the unknown would still compel us to take a peak inside...

    Timothy, I really like the feeling of vastness and enormity in this poem. I've mentioned this to someone else here once before, but I think it's very difficult to make small poems feel large and expansive, but you did it very well here. Cheers! -Jeremy

    I really appreciate your perceptive comment. My goal was to make the first moments of birth feel "enormous" (as you say) in a few choice words.
