Within Being Born

Now hear the womb of one’s motherhood bare
To the deep rise of innocence born unto air
To time’s tide, to ebb and flow’s weaving of whispers
The roots dive to feed the soul gravity-wise.

While searching for clouds’ voice to come and go thirsty
Dying to learn what each season’s end knows
Wondering where the cords cut reveals branches
To leave for the sun on their own
And united

    great Collabration work C.C!

  • Thank you Ushna, your commenting matters so much, And fact is, this was more a gift and poetic blessing to antanas than it was a collaboration. Most of my writings here on RedBubble are inspired by the art work and artists here.
