    About Impending Fatherhood

    Well, the due date is upon us.
    Any time now, I might take a sudden absence all things internet !
    Sometimes, I dabble in poetry when there is something driving the muse.
    From week 5, we dubbed our little one 'Pistachio' for the size she was when we first saw her little heart beating

    Anticipating Pistachios

    This road before me lies bare,
    Footstep free without an end.
    The road behind you lies worn,
    Tree lined memories marshall each bend.
    Some forgotten, worn and faded,
    Some stand proud, adorned, paraded.
    Yet as I peer over your shoulder
    Their backs stay faithfully turned
    Directing past dreams,
    Urging them to the fore.
    Some abandoned, fallen and burnt
    Scattered ash, forgotten lore.
    Others fly before me
    A wind of seeds in a wistful sea
    Searching roots for new memories
    Waiting only for passers by
    To stop, to smile or cry
    No matter in sadness or in joy
    No matter girl nor boy
    Our tears a spring for dreams anew
    The road before us no longer bare.


    The plan was to be well rested before the actual birth, but it has been the opposite! Nervous energy keeping me awake and being generally unproductive lol
    Hope that wasn't too corny if you spent the time reading it :P

    A poet as well as an excellent photographer.

    As Roo said your life is about to change forever. It will be very different from now on, but you wont regret it.

    I'm just visualizing the image.. Cute little baby with an Icelandic long exposure background, with a direwolf lying beside the baby for protection.
    I almost forgot... Also in the background is Marianne with a big heavy backpack, looking over a ice covered crevice, in a tradgic treeless landscape. Flying above are three coloured dragons.

    Wish you and Marianne all the best. And may parenthood be a relatively easy one for you.
    Can't wait to see her, and the style of photography you choose to present her to all her AusPhotography Uncles and Aunts.

    Exciting times Dylan and some wonderful treasured memories coming your way for you and Marianne. That poem belongs somewhere in the baby album. Children are such a blessing and bring such joy. All the best

    What a beautiful poem - something your little Pistachio will cherish when he or she is older.

    All the best for the upcoming birth. As you will soon know, becoming a father (or mother) is the most amazing experience. Looking forward to all the bubby pics.

    Just be careful with the PP, Dylan. Baby skin doesn't respond well to stacked ND's!
