Baby-O, now born

If you're not a regular viewer of my daughter's Blog, swing by and check out her most recent photos. She's such an angel.

The title of this blog is a reference to a poem by Diane DiPrima. Before Kalli was born I painted a canvas for her wall using that poem. Here it is:

"Song for Baby-O, Unborn"

Sweetheart
when you beark thru
you'll find
a poet here
not quite what one would choose.

I won't promise
you'll never go hungry
or that you won't be sad
on this gutted
breaking
globe

But I can show you
baby
enough to love
to break your heart
forever

Be my guest! I'd love to see what you'd come up with.... as a matter of fact, I just realized I've never seen any of your artwork.

Three things:
1. That poem made my heart ache...beautiful.
2. Not having seen Addie's artwork is a sin. Repent.
3. I lied, there were only two things.
