The colour of jubilant sky,
Sapphire-crystal sea
and a sign on a pregnancy kit result

The womb feels strangely irrelevant
Its chatter echoes, falls silent, unheard
An eternity stretches

The womb slumbers
It dreams of baby-blue woollen socks
Chubby knees marked by playground grazes
lollipop-stained lips
Matted pig-tails and cherub faces
Twinkling brightly in the sun

Reminiscent of sapphire-crystal sea
and a blue jubilant sky
