Meditation is Ninjamom Training

After waking early,

for too much coffee in the still-dark morning,

and cranky, painful hours,

of wrangling a tired baby to the brink of napping —

a mother can will herself

not to move.

She can ignore any itch,

disregard any achy hip,

endure any discomfort,

not to disturb

the sleeping baby in her arms.
