	LIKE A NEWBORN

	By Kevork Kalayjian


	Like a newborn 
	with helpless innocence
	seedlings are growing 
	at the farmer's backyard 

	while the farmer thinks of
	the children who already grew
	to leave the land behind 
	to search for a home. 

	Like a newborn  
	the farmer looks at 
	the spring sky
	full of promise

	when the produce
	will be ready to sell
	when the fruits will ripe
	full of promise.
