3:15 Experiment Poetry: Aug. 24, 2007–baby baby are you calling me?

June 29, 2009

Ella and Holly 2009sm

Holly Holly
I dreamt of you
your name was on
the tip of my tongue
when I awoke.

You have a baby coming
and when I thought of
you when I awoke
with your name in mind
I heard your daughter’s name–
Emily. Emily–it’s a nice
name. Is it the name
you plan on calling her?

I’d always thought you’d name
a daughter after your mother
your mother who died
when you were a girl
your mother who has no
first name as far as
I know you’ve always
referred to her as Mom.

Baby baby how are you?
Were you calling to me
across the night
wanting me to say hello
to your mom for you?

I wrote this as part of the 3:15 Experiment back in 2007 when my friend Holly was pregnant; less a few weeks later, she did indeed deiver a baby girl who she named Ella. I visted them last weekend, so they’re fresh on my mind. For more poetry, ride the train!

    They are cool, these 3;15am poems. There is always that slight suggestion of mystery or magic of the subconscious still lurking.

    It has that supernatural element. I like it.
