fertility

I have written on this theme before (search my site for “birth of a poem”) but then…after my first son, I eventually birthed 4 more!

poem begins as embryo

when an image sparks

pregnant thoughts

which swell into words;

word cells divide/multiply

to form fetal phrases

as distinct details develop

with additions/edits

until time comes to

birth and deliver poem

to the waiting world

with hope it will be

accepted, perhaps

even loved.

    Doesn’t raising five sons qualify you for the Nobel Peace Prize?
