Welcome Felix

Suspended like a dew drop,
at the very tip of a blade of grass
bent towards the earth,
Felix slips into this world,
and into his mother's heart,
and into his father's heart,
and into their arms.

Sweet baby boy.
after love
after love
conspiring to bring you here,
as you slide gracefully
to take your place
in this world.

(7lb 9oz, Felix arrived at 7.22 today to my darling cousin Janina)
