Amiya

Your big, brown eyes
take up the top upper half
of your beautiful face

eyelashes curling up
to the heavens
when you blink
it’s like the great fanfare
of the guards paying
homage to their Gods
whisking away boredom
and greeting luxury

caramel colored skin
like your mother’s
I see mostly her
Shakti in all of your
early being

and when you smile
your toothless, joyful smile
I can’t wait to have one of
you of my own
to call one of you
all
my
own–
