Baby Blues (Eyes)

Baby blues see
searching seeking
roving room for mother’s eyes.

Baby blues
‘tween flop-eyed wand’rings
stare steadfastly into brown.

Baby blues close
shuffling snoozing
dreaming milkmade happy times.

Baby blues
what are you thinking?
closed-lid dancing; furrowed frown.

Baby blues
so deep and changing
knowing sagely I love you.

    How sweet. If put to music this could be a lullaby too. Beautiful, Chelsea.

    Very nice! I’m assuming your newborn has blue eyes.

    Knowing that they know you is very comforting, isn’t it?

    This feels like you should be able to sing it or something, but the syllables per line makes me think maybe not. I dunno – it’s so bouncy!
