    I couldn't sleep.

    I've been taken over
    by sweet seduction.
    Intimate concentration required.
    I turned down the brightness
    of the day,
    peeled away
    the shades of night

    Focused on what
    was left dwelling and listened
    to myself
    I am a mother
    giving birth to words
    feel them growing
    within my womb

    Can you hear them?

    Fetuses of text
    my babies
    their cries reaching
    toward listening ears

    Can you feel them?

    Tiny things wishing
    only to be cradled
    and loved.
    With pen and tongue
    I release my babies
    announcing their birth to you.

    really liked this...sorry didn't see it during your week
    (but sometimes i am a turtle...slow, but focused)
    liked the title and the imaging of birth...creating something new..
    new beginnings...
    and the title...giving respect to the form..
    like this...

    Thank you, Deepy! It's alright about missing it. I am constantly finding stuff on here that I missed. Alot of which posted before I joined. But this piece, it is one of my personal faves, because I guess everyone of us feels a certain way when you "craft" a new piece. You know, you are the first to conceive it, write it, read it, and it can be released in your time...only. Thanks for getting it. :spin:
