summer’s last litter

rabbit’s heart patters fast beat

sudden departure!

12-14 weeks conceived

 

 

developing young one

learns comfort of thumb

inside warm, watery world,

of safe and secret sanctuary

 

tiny ears tuned to listen

to thrum of momma’s heartbeat,

fetal heart swishes double-time

in syncopated love song

 

ineffable miracle of life,

daddy anticipates the birth

by considering unique name,

for precious persona.
