      Tiny Tyrant


I love this suckling baby man,
too new to see and know
of whom or what, and yet
demanding that I understand
should soiled discomfort grow
too much and rouse his fret,

or colic bite a restful snooze.
I love this gushing feel,
full breasts responding to
his need, the knowing how to use
a tight-lipped suction seal
until his bonding coo.

Bold rivers through his parents flowed
and met in him. How far
upstream did melt begin?
Who gave the chromosomes that showed
his eyes that onyx star,
flashing in his grin?

Could he improve their gift to him?
He'll send no finer gene
downstream to those unborn,
his cup, perfection to the brim!
I vow, his daughter queen
could kingdoms one day mourn.

A tiny tyrant rules my heart,
I gladly bend the knee
of usurped loyalty,
and beg his lordship to impart
a gentle hand on she
who nurses royalty.

Roxane

Terrific ABCABC scheme - and the subject is so There.  Welcome to the Forums - you are going to be so comfortable and welcome here - there is so much support and goodness in this site

psst, Watch out for that rascally Balladeer, Haleyja (Parker), and Toerag.  Trust ONLY me, because my heart is pure and they are scalawags!  Don't worry about them reading this mesaage - Its in italics, and I'm pretty sure they don't know how to speak Italic.

I too nursed my babies...there were days when I thought I'd never have time to myself...and now I long for them again...mine are 21, 16, 13 and 10...and though they nursed for many a moon, it only seems like a fleeting moment..cherish the time they spend at your breast...
Sweet writing...save it for your babe
