like an atom
accelerating
 splitting
macro fission
energetic emission
as two beings emerge
separately
from one body
 energy released
energy burned
brighter than imagined
as the first cry is heard
growing in intensity
proof of life
 proof of love
glowing brighter
 radiant.
The birth of my sons (2009 and 2012)

I love the drive of this poem, and the repetition of words and sounds:

"macro fission
energetic emission"

and

"energy released
energy burned."

And "proof of life
proof of love" is brilliant. I've never heard that first phrase in this context, and it's so unexpected and meaningful.

Thank you for sharing — just gorgeous!
