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

with her sleepy baby in her arms.

She can ignore any itch,

disregard any achy hip,

endure any discomfort,

not to disturb

the sleeping baby in her arms.
