Popped Corn

baby in belly
with hiccups
amniotic fluid swallowed
too quickly
belly skin stretches and beats
popped corn
rattling the lid of a pot
dad places hand
on mom on belly
where they are curled
in sunny spot on floor
baby back caressed through
mom belly
soothing touch
brings stillness
to mom and baby
asleep on floor
made warm by
morning sun
