My great granddaughter, Kaylee is on her way.
My granddaughter, Valerie is ten centimeters
and ready to push. How do I know,Valerie told
me so. She sends me a text message at two
centimeters, then five and again at ten. She
keeps me informed of her labor progress
and lets me know it’s time to push. These
are incredible times now. I live in Florida,
my granddaughter lives in Tennessee.
I feel I am right there with her. What
a wonderfully weird world we live in.
(Another poem from Poets United prompt "Weird")
