Robin’s Egg Blue
By John Kaniecki

Tense moments in the paint store
Scrutinizing cards
Of near identical colors
Forty shades of blue and more
Pick a perfect selection of creation
Robin Red Breast singing
Joyful harbinger of dawn
Serenading the setting sun
A deeper hue
Slightly less gloss
Exactly how will it look dry?
Rubbing oversized tummy
Caressing the blessing
Baby coming
None too soon
First of a family
To be large?
Hopeful hysteria
Don’t dismiss me as neurotic
Simply enraptured in love
Have you ever walked this blissful path?
Hope radiating brightly
God is good
