This photo of Sage was taken at the Birth Center just before we took him home. I remember being so amazed by his beauty, his little features so proportional, his skin so unbelievably soft. I couldn't stop looking at him. I remember thinking I finally understood what the word 'miracle' meant.
In your light I learn how to love.
In your beauty, how to make poems.
You dance inside my chest,
where no one sees you,
but sometimes I do,
and that sight becomes this art.
