Today, my grandson -- _____ Robinson – is being born in Los Angeles at Cedars-Sinai Hospital. (No name yet.) This is a very happy day for our family: for the parents Jesse and Katrina, for my in-laws Steve and Cheryl and everyone on Katrina's side, for my daughter the new Aunt Daisy, and for my wife, the Tiny Goddess.
The birth of a grandson merits an ode, not a blog. But I haven't written any poetry in years; not even a haiku. But I can still say some of the things that I want to say, the things in my heart that come from the same place that poetry comes from.
