    With toothless milk-breathed ‘O’ mouths
    reaching without moving for their breakfast…

    Ah… the trials of no sleep because of a new born… I remember that well.
    One doesn’t sleep well when they are teens either! 😉
    But we manage, we are the corks that rise to the surface bobbing for both want and need 🙂

    I remember those days, Chelsea. My oldest son didn’t sleep through the night until he was 9 and sometimes woke me up 10 times in a night. Now that I think about, why on earth did I have a second [grin]?

      Why, thank you. 😀 It helped to write in a sleep-deprived mindset!

    I like the way you experiment with your poetry: the forms are never the same. Other blogs have poem after poem that look the same. I like variety. I like poets who shake it up a bit, take chances.

      Thanks! I’m trying to improve it overall.

      I like the odd, clever whimsy of yours.

      I’ve decided I use sleep as a numbing tactic -you know, when kids aren’t naturally involved.
