A Life Inside

A life inside a life
Mysterious, profound, surreal
Microscopic beginnings
Splitting, expanding, complexifying
A life inside a life
Swelling, nudging, protruding
Making its presence known
Listening, stretching, responding
Demanding care and preparation
A life inside a life
Unsettling, disruptive, life-altering
Joy-giving, enriching, heart-expanding
While still
A life inside a life.
