pulling me out through my womb
coldness piles itself around
my stony womanhood
scarring life’s channels
closing them off
killing the kernel before it explodes
a warm fertile serpent slowly uncoils
and slides itself from my shivering belly
into the foreign future of tomorrow
a disappearing chimera
This is my piece for Margo Roby’s Tuesday Tryouts. The prompt was to explore something we lost.
Powerful and painful. It is so good to write pieces on loss. It helps the pain woven into the fabric of us to air…
Am speechless !! Nothing like this loss 😐
Very powerful in its imagery. Lovely prose.
Thanks for note to let me know I’d commented on the wrong week. Typical of me..lol
Not a problem, sounds like me, too. Thanks for stopping to read and comment here.
Very poignant and powerful piece. Thanks for visiting my blog as well.
I’m glad you stopped by and like the piece. Thank you.
Wow, Brenda. This is an intense piece of writing. Good one. I am glad to see you joining in.
I am only now thinking about all the things I’ve lost.
I planned to start last week, but the etheree stumped me. 🙂 Thanks for stopping to read, and leave kind words. I appreciate you.
Wow, you are fast, Brenda. I’m still listing things. But this is a poignant and powerful piece. The sadness is tangible.
As soon as my mind lit on this as something lost, I went with it. Thank you for the prompt, and for stopping to leave your imprint here. I’m enjoying your presence out here in the blog world.
