Five PoundsA Poem by Kenneth S.
five pounds of infant snoozing softly
in a basket that celebrities buy for the
name only, dreaming dreams of milk
and diaper changes while her father
sits at the computer a few feet away,
trying to let the poetic verve come out
from a very long sleep and then a
reverse burp occurs, a signal showing
momentary happiness, the methane is
gone, a sign of a baby well-fed, a very
tasty meal indeed
mom slumbers in the next room,
dreaming dreams of when sleep
will return normally again, but
from head to toe, top to bottom,
she epitomizes the motherhood
that a professor he had once
upon a time talked about,
and now, for a short moment,
all his right in his small world,
silence is there for thoughts to
be pounded out into prose,
and future wisdom is given
to a new being, one that is
meant to turn her into the
person she is meant to be
this is a life worth living
