The Baby – A Calling

Following the path
of God incarnate
the child enters
into life
with genetic markers
stumbling parents
future choices.
her calling
is clear and sharp.
She cries praise to God,
and gazes in amazement
at every light and face,
movement and sound.
Wonder fills her eyes
as her mouth explores shape
and texture
while arms and hands
flail with random abandon.
She will be taught
in time
but now
she teaches us
the naïve joy of life
and newness
trust and hope.
She preaches a gurgling word
straight from the Maker.
