A Diamond Moment

Long awaited
a seed implants
and grows.
Heartbeat like gossamer wings
strengthens.
A body stretches, expands.
Miraculous development
to precise timetable.
Then complete,
waiting at an end,
two lives
intimately linked
together struggle
strain
triumph
and are transformed into a family.
In Australia a Diamond Moment – every other minute

Thanks - saw a great movie last night that said it perfectly too "The Business of Being Born" by Ricky Lake and Abby Epstein. Should be mandatory viewing for all young women (and young men)!
