The Precious To Bathe

(inspiration:  a photo capturing a baby in a basin.  The baby is praying with its eyes shut.  Water is being poured over the baby during bathing process).

At last the time came
For the clensing to occur
Moments to prepare
The basin placed on the counter
Soap, towels, and essentials
Water to the jug, warm to touch
Time for baby, so dear
Precious little one, our time
Together forming bonds
Bubbles pop, laughter
A smile as the clensing
Water purifies while
Running down, washes
Over every crevice
Hauntingly blessed
