Dancing to music

playing only in her head

until her babe sleeps

enveloped in her embrace

sanctuary of love and dreams


Toni hosts Meeting the Bar over at Dverse.  The Form is Tanka.

  1. This is a lovely poem. I used to rock my children to sleep when they were young too. It’s a happy memory for me. Getting up two and a half hours later to change their diaper, not so much.

    1. Apart from my husband, I see a lot of dads (in CHurch) takin gcare of their babies and they are so uplifting to see. Happy are the kids with dads like you and them. SOmetimes, I prefer changing diapers because the job is quick. WHen you rock a child to sleep, you are not sure when he will actually sleep. 🙂
