Writing Prompt Wednesday – “Soft”


A Mother’s Love by danielaurin

Stirring the air with each small puff of breath

This baby sleeps soundly

Comforted by the presence of their mother

Who sits, gently rocking back and forth as she leans on the crib

Watching with wonder at this small life that has joined, and bettered, her own

Who’d have thought something–someone–so small

So new to this world and with no experience

Could bring such joy and happiness?

With the lightest of touches

The mother gently traces a finger down the babe’s cheek

Soft to the touch

Lighter than clouds and purer than snow

The mother sighs in bliss

Eager for her child to awaken and see the world
