The First Time You Saw Your Parents Smile , by pd Lyons


The First Time You Saw Your Parents Smile

in the month of strawberries

when you were born

tender lips of your mother pressed as if to savour  

something cool and soothing.

your father held you up to the night sky

compared you to stars.

 amazed

you didn’t cry but rather open mouth drooled.
