For My Niece, Brand New Today


Dear Morgan,

The world is enormously tragical, but within your brand new

deep wondering eyes, I see all the beauty—

every miracle that is, and ever will be.

What omnipotent being exists

who is pure as a sweet babe fresh from

the womb?

Morgan with immaculate heart,

springtime flows through your veins—

from baby’s breath do the gardens grow.

The world is enormously beautiful.



  1. ❤️ when I became an auntie, I can honestly say, was the first time I fell head over heals in love. I still have a sweet spot in my heart for my first nephew, who currently is in second year uni!

    1. Thank you. I wanted to hold her–keep her to myself. I have never been a good sharer. Even when my own mother wanted to hold her granddaughter, I cried inside to pass her over. Little Morgan…my beautiful niece. I’m gonna spoil the shit out of her, lol!
