“Childbirth” — a poem

One cool April night we feel your clamoring to appear/Your angry and tired blazing and intelligent eyes/Staring at those who bring you forth to burst into a world

As a separate/God detached yet bound/Who summon you

From the warm watery kingdom, from the mix and matching/Of endless spirals laced into the lattice of life/The ineffable plan that sucks constant at creation


“Childbirth” has been published in Issue 1.1 of the Bellow Literary Journal — www.bellowliteraryjournal.com
