Spring's Child


mounts up;

pink bliss flares,

enters supple


Purple slumber settles.

Moon is unaware of the tide below. 

Tears squeeze from the anxious sky, spill on

nervous springs. Thunder shakes a sobbing womb.

Water breaks (from hidden depths) in delusional deluge.

Crusted mud howls frantic sufferings, twists on agonies.

Gilded bedrock cracks in twain, damp and wailing.

And then – finally – she explodes;  

one life-bud 

lays soaking

in the dawn

of release,

facing her
