Then There Was Three

Photo by Georgia Maciel on

Only seen through dim moonlight

The crib is against the wall

Safely ensconced in her blanket

The tiny baby sleeps soundly

Mouth still suckling an invisible bottle

Standing quietly at the door

The parents both beam in happiness

The first night all together in their home

This new little family

Thankful beyond words

For the sacrifice of the teen

Too scared and alone

To care for her child

Made the loving decision

To give her baby a home

And a family to love

Written for Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (FOWC) – ensconced
