Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
Fertility Restored

No comments

If i could bleed away care
and restore a womb to garden,

there would be no need

to conceive with pen and mind;

for i would be a lustrous channel,

sacred floodgate,

golden chalice of unpoured waters,

kitchen beaming, a morsel waiting

for a nebulous wanderer
to settle in and call home.
