Immaculate Conception – A Poem

When my child was born

I knew him instantly

As if he had always been

I couldn’t even look to my past

Without it being shaped

By his eternal instant


I feel you

Seeping through

The cracks of my awareness

The gaps in my knowing


Bursting in my gut

To rush up

With energising force

Into my skull

Complete sometimes

Only needing to be written


Obscure but known

The code and the key

Without expecting

Without asking

An alarming sense of speed

On a darkened road

While no-one is driving

Fear and excitement


You have come to me



A smaller son

Reshaping horizons

  1. Ha! I knew stupid was not stupid…you gave your game away with this sweet poem…touching, tender, romantic, but I will not tell a soul or ruin your mask. Candy kisses for you, pat

  2. I really think this is one of the best poems I’ve read on here…some fantastic writing and really touching without being corny. Why fierce panda, I think you’ve a bit of depth going on under that fur of yours 😉

You can tell me anything (yes, even that!)
