    the embryo in her womb
    product of love's insinuation
    planned yet unplanned
    talked about but unscripted

    the sickness envelopes her emotionally and physically
    her ligaments stretch like strings on a violin left in the sun

    "where is my glow?" she asks

    woman and man separated
    by a being no larger than a marble
    they reach out their hands to each other
    like waving tendrils but cannot reach

    "where is our love?" they ask

    seasons change as new life springs forth
    the earth births life upon itself

    crying child is placed into new mother's arms
    with a glow upon her face,
    the woman and man look at each other and
    sigh, "ahhh..."
