How do you spell "WAIT"? I spell it like this:
Woman, full up with warmth, surrenders (unwillingly?) to a journey controlled entirely by the compass of others.
Anxious is putting it mildly...waiting to exhale, more appropriate.
Inside, I shiver on the razor-sharp edges of my hope (never knew hope to have such a palpable presence)...
Torn between wary caution and joyful abandon.
Today, I think I'll choose joy.
Dare I hope for this happiness?
Dare I exhale?
Breathing in, I inhale motherhood.
Breathing out, I exhale my impatience.
