Spin Cycle-Rhyme Time

After many-many weeks of surreptitiously reading posts at Sprite's Keeper's Spin Cycle I've decided to join in! This week's spin asks participants to write (or quote) a poem or piece of prose. I was going to write something fantastic just for my first spin, but let's face's Thursday, it's late, and frankly it's too much pressure! SO-I submit for your reading pleasure (I hope!) a small poem that I wrote shortly after My Bella Figlia was born:

Hybrid child
your father and I
we spliced our genes
found in-betweens
where we could bide within you

Into air
uncurling daily
you far exceed
our scientific greed.
