Brand New

What it is
To hold
Such a delicate thing
With ten tiny fingers
And ten tiny toes
So new
So fragile
So strong
In the cleanness
Of mind
Of heart
Of soul
All sweetness
Of smell
Of soft touch
Knowing nothing
Of life’s grime and dust
Let this one
So small
So new
Teach the wonder
Of being human
And having life

I am a retired teacher, enjoying everything that retirement means. In addition, I have been active in the LGBTQ community since I was four years old and marched my Ken doll with all his little Ken accouterments to the big metal trash can in the yard. Yes, I dumped Ken, along with said accouterments, into the can and slammed the lid on. My two Barbie dolls lived happily ever after.
