BLOG POST #238 – CHANGES

This was written in a response to a challenge in my writers’ group to write a poem about ‘changes’.

9 MONTHS

At first 

the change

is imperceptible

A liking for something

you never liked before

Then the first flicker

Did you imagine it?

It feels like the flutter of

a butterfly wing

The clothes you wore     

no longer fit

and strangers 

pat 

your stomach

like they own it

Then

out of the blue 

one day

the first kick

takes your breath away

What a surprise

Your body is changing

before your eyes.

  1. Hi Andrea
    I gave this top marks! Lovely idea and I am pleased Ian was able to show the shape of the poem on the website.
    See you later.
    Best wishes,
    Mike
