Five Minute Friday: New Baby, New Routine

Today, I’m writing with the Five Minute Friday community writing group, and this week’s word is ROUTINE.  If you’d like to join in, the linkup is here.

Foggy head

blurry eyes

sharp pain with every move.

Hearing beeps and alarms at all hours

blood pressure cuff squeezing my arm

needles poking my hands to check my blood.

A new baby laying next to me

helpless and utterly dependent on me for life.

Time for me to pee

please don’t hurt, I silently pray.

My movements are sluggish and I think in slow motion.

Time to go home and introduce baby girl to big sister,

be a mother of two.

I’m still not all here emotionally or physically

But life will fall into a new routine

and this fog will lift.


About miccahmarie

I got my first Diary when I was 10. I couldn't wait to write in it at night to divulge all of the details of my day onto paper with my turquoise pen. I now find that writing has become therapeutic for me. I need time to think and sort out what is going on inside and often when I'm most emotionally heightened is when I write most creatively. My years of journaling are a compilation of written out prayers as well as lamenting poems. Now as a wife and mother, my perspectives have changed, as I reflect on who I was and who God is making me to be.
