The Pregnant Woman

(A modern freestyle haiku).

Languishing in
reasonable pains
Nine months labor.

In the outside
cherishing the inside
An asset in her womb.

They intermingled
human offspring sprung
their cardboard copy.

Womb load
don't lean on fear
you will drop freely.

By: Charles Melody (Lightning Ink).

    Charles this is lovely. What better gift in life than new birth. I guess we are all sort of carbon copies when we are born. Never thought about it that way. Hope all is well with you. love mom

    Interesting take on pregnancy....I have been in and out of the soup lately...mostly busy with helping my son with school and just being lazy about writing. Will try to be better about commenting.

    Yes. The total speaks very clearly of being human. I love this sort of Haiku, and, hello Charles. Love, daver

    There is a special bond a woman feels with her unborn child and you have described it so well, son. You made your "mum" proud. Beautiful haiku! Love, Carolyn
