Gestation

 

From some inner dark,
glimmer seeds of love and light;
a mother gives birth.

From emotion's well,
once-silent words are drawn forth;
a poet writes.

With thanks to The Sunday Muse for their inspiration.

    1. I'm sorry I can't leave a comment on your blog, Laura, but I have read and enjoyed your offering for this prompt, especially the last few lines. They sum up the human condition, and then some.

  11. From emotion swell
    a once-silent poet writes
    words are drawn forth
    ..
    A nice set, Jinksy, I like.
    I opened a Gravatar profile so I could comment on the Word Press blogs. Take a look at "qbit's" or Rob's, click on my 'Tin Man and Me' photo there before my comment. It's easy to get one, most of them open a Blogger account so they can comment on yours.

    1. As I already have a profile image set up, I'm loathe to enter another one into the mix!
      But thanks for the tip - I'll maybe investigate further, when I have time. :-)

    1. I think a small Light-shine person may be seen peeping at us, just left of centre? (But they do hide themselves well ?!) I'm glad you found some of their light reflected in the words..
