26 Mar

Every time you moan, then roll off me and lie on your back, catching your breath, trumpets sound, maracas clatter, and bugles play. Drummers beat and flotillas parade, and masked-and-feathered dancers whirl in the noonday sun. Banners wave and confetti sparkles, and colors light up the ether. Laughter erupts, there’s spontaneous clapping, and I hear crowds cheer as they line the streets.

Every time you moan, then roll off me, lie on your back and catch your  breath, the universe bursts forth in jubilation. Tilt your head back, shimmy those hips, and celebrate, World: my baby just might be on her way.

    Pallavi: Thank you for being happy for me. 🙂 I don’t always write about myself, though, and we are not pregnant. I am delighted to be adored, though, so keep that up!

    Suma: Read the tags, child: fiction! 🙂

    dipali: And that makes me glad.

    sukanyabora: You guessed correctly!

    Aunty G: Hugs back, new grandma! :mrgreen:

    To everyone who pinged/called/wrote: Thank you for your concern and wishes, but n.o.t. p.r.e.g.n.a.n.t. 🙂 Will certainly let you know if that changes.

    Heh, I noticed the fiction tag, but I thought it was more about the first para than about the second, although, I don’t know why anyone would do that! But pregnant or not, you are adorable 😀
