7/32 Gary

While you formed in my belly
My soul swirled first.
I could say to an insect
I feel you.
I feel you.

Still smaller than a marble
Tiny bundle of nerves and sea water
Refracts my essence
Filling me

My eyes saw four children
My heart saw five
Den and Ron would play chess
I imagine
You teaching.

When you emerged from me
In the typical way
My compass gyrated off its center
Then, like a magnet,
Two complete.

Now in your own body,
You grasp every toy like Torah,
Study every angle, every property.
Eyes hunger
For every action.

Not content to watch impassive
You capture and command attention
I who bore you see and witness:
I feel you.
I feel you.
