The baby shower

1484148-1280x720-[DesktopNexus.com] (1)

Delicate leaves quiver as raindrops
fall
while bigger ones sway
with the breeze

Inside, women
of many colours
gather to wish a mother
playing games, laughing,
unscrambling words:
yballul, repaid

At the end of this Saturday
afternoon
a piece of yarn
the width of a pregnant belly
and the stories we tell
ourselves, stands the truth

Due soon

Like stars against tarmac
comes the heavy rain now
