Birthing Pangs & Pleasures – 2016

Featured

Bearing calmly the soft suffering
The pain of letting go; eyeing its unborn
With keen anticipation and hope

2016 stands pregnant; pot-bellied
And fertile, ready to give birth
To months, days, hours, moments

Let it relax and breathe deep!
Let it be an easy birth!
Let all babies glide forth!

Would they be stillborn, or bubbling
With life; hungry and crying
For more joy, feats new evermore?

Merry months, delightful days
Happy hours, beautiful moments
The essence of our very being

Once cuddled and well-fed
They will lie peacefully, to grow
Gently cradled within our lives
