I would think it most darling
for nudging me with ideas while only
“I hope you look like me,”
I would tell it with fondness.
For this unborn book would carry my name.
I would think it most naughty
for exerting a will of its own while only a
“Who taught you such sass?”
I would demand with a threat.
For it was putting its author and her wits to shame.
I would think it most stubborn
for taking on a life and a look of its own
I would be most proud
for what it became and what it helped me become.

Love your thoughts! Keep writing 🌸
So beautifully and accurately expressed.
Thank you! At least book babies don’t need diapers changed, right??

You are SO right. Oh my goodness. There is much more potential for this metaphor than I realized!
