i missed my baby's birthday

...my blog baby, that is. It was my blog's third birthday last Friday (October 19th) and I totally forgot. So maybe something I wrote way back when I hadn't been blogging as long as I have now, is in fact coming true:

My blog is weaned

and taking its first steps on its own.
I've stopped tip-toeing into its room
when all is quiet
to see if it is still breathing.
I've even begun to ignore the baby monitor.

For that is a writer's way
when she finds she is pregnant again
and all instincts demand
she turn her energies
to the gestation of new words,
the private nurturing of an embryo
story, article, collection of poems.
