Is this your first?

For mothers with rainbow babies

It is easier to say yes.
To pretend your belly is a summer meadow
your flock is warm and safe.

The truth is
your fence has a hole
big enough for lambs to escape.
Treacherous and jagged.

Your field seems dark and arid.
You are blind
to the extraordinary rainbow
radiating permanence.
