Evy Kay in the Daylight

Evy Kay yawns in the daylight of her dawn
twinkling eyes of diamond stars
this daughter of my eldest son
is God’s Grand Gift to me.

Created from silent song of love
from tiny trickle to rolling stream,
this soon to be born child of light,
visited me recently in a dream.

“Father of my father,
I am from blood of your blood,
I am from flesh of your flesh,
Take me in your outstretched arms.”

Sounds of sparrows scurrying upon windowsill
awakened my sleeping soul.
Comprehension of your kiss and cuddle
curved my lips into a shit-eating grin.
