Joy Of Pregnancy

Joy Of Pregnancy

A Poem by Shalini Dinesh (Poet's World)





Not until now knew how gifted was I,

As the satin ripples with a gentle flick,
And the river in reciprocal to the breeze,
Butterflies kisses so humble and soft,
As the pearls move on a marble smooth,
So were the kicks, and somersault sweet,
Of a blessed child within my tummy beat,
The moment of joy and pride I take,
To myself I smile as I feel the bond,
Not until now knew how gifted was I,
Until I felt the kicking of my child!

Your poem is so beautiful, each and every word but those last two lines are tear.jerkingly wonderful: ' Not until now knew how gifted was I, ~ Until I felt the kicking of my child!.. ' That must be the most precious happening, magical reality, knowing that inside you is a new life waiting for your love and of course, your husband's. I can only guess there are few moments better and more memorable than that first kick or two..

Be happy, dear friend; take care of yourself until that fantastic day and ever after your baby's birth! And please, please let your friends know when and who ..

Thank you so much for the wonderful review and hearty wishes :)
I love it!....
I remember all three of my pregnancies well, the moment movement is felt, even the slightest flutter brought about a sense of serenity. To always feel that part of you coming to life, really attached to your Body and Soul, knowing you could Love no one more than the little one tucked away within the protection of your body. You are one with your child even as they make their debut into the world, even as they grow and they are their own little person.... The connection is strong, Always. Communication becomes as swift as eye contact and the miracle is always present. Proof that miracles exist lies with each being produced by the mother whom God had chosen to bring Life into the world.
Much love and light to you sweetie.
May you have a healthy, smooth pregnancy and delivery of a wonderful healthy miracle that is your own child, your personal blessing, a piece of you....May God Bless You Both:)

My pleasure sweet one.
A touching poem, this should be shared worldwide. Congratulation! Wishing you a healthy and safe pregnancy and all the best with your expected new arrival!

For me, some mothers felt so useless (not contributing to the society by working) when they are pregnant but in truth, they are doing something even the greatest man can't do, is to carry man's greatest hope and achievements and bring it into our world. While mothers are busy doing that, men are busy protecting and preparing along with the mother to give love to the child inside.

Thank you so much for your kind review and for the hearty wishes :)
A beautiful poem. Years ago I saw a woman at the coffee shop. She was with baby and so beautiful. I wrote a poem for her and I gave her the poem. Her husband wanted to pay for the poem. I told him to see a woman with child shining so bright is all the gift I needed. Artwork and words are true. A wise person can see the glow of joy and life in a beautiful woman. Thank you for the outstanding poetry.
