From A Wintered Womb

From The Wintered Womb

Underneath the thrice ploughed, fertile, fallow field
Impregnated within a wintered, woven, womb
Of richly composted humus
I lay seeking sustenance, nourishment from
The oxygen filled wintered mist that
Drizzles, seeping, replenishing the amniotic fluids
That trickle through the membranous umbilical cord
Fertilizing, greening,
Ensuring a bountiful spring harvest.

  1. As a creative writing teacher once wrote on my homework, “Fecund with meaning!” (I had to look up ‘fecund’ & then could relax, knowing it was a compliment…).

  2. Profound imagery even as I thrust my hands into the rich,loamy earth where winter has been assisting the compost of fall create more worms than rocks.
