On Being A Parent

Trifecta has asked us to compose a 33-word non-fiction poem or story.  Well, here is a story that I am sure many of you, who are parents yet, who still strive to mantain the romance of being a couple, can appreciate. Enjoy!


On Being A Parent

Sandwiched between our naked, glistening, panting bodies
lays the sleepy body
of our tiny daughter
who crawled into our bed,
unaware
that the scary noises she was awakened by
were definitely not monsters!
