For me inconceivable – but wondrously observable !

***********************

Full term approaches,

she’s large & ungainly

shuffling unsteadily

signs of discomfort.

~~~

Months of waiting –

anticipating first-born’s

arrival anxiously –

now almost over.

Faintest twinges

soon transform to

seismic contractions

as labour consumes

~~~

Laid uncomfortably

Gasping breathlessly

Pushing urgently

Crying frightfully

~~~

Her infant lamb appears…
