Wonder Weeks

Wonder Weeks

There is an avarice for touching
inherent in new children
along with fretfulness and crying,
such as before they grasp
the possibilities of toes.

There are whole wonder weeks
as image folds into image
like turns of a kaleidoscope…
soft female croon
and deep resonance of male,
loudness startle
and entrancing music shimmer.

There is a faint remembrance
of  these wonder weeks
that persists throughout a lifetime
with occasional fretfulness and crying
just before we achieve awareness
of  bright possibilities.
