My womb is a Garden, poem by mare

Spring Ephemerals - Mare's D-ville Hs (c) Mare Cromwell

My womb is a Garden



My womb is a garden.

She is a space of flowers and blessings

And fertile soil with lots of happiness


And I shall tend her

This sacred space with kindness

And openness to the mysteries


Of a healthy bed of blooms

And small gifts of occasional droppings

Of those who can help to fertilize


This rich rich zone of creative bursts

Of joy and bliss

And occasional sobs from sorrow


Of life passed on and somewhat

Forgotten only the tears that fall

From a sky of wonder and bright


Fortunes that lie ahead

In the opening of new seasons

New seeds and butterflies


That have been cocooned up way too long

In embryonic sleep that is

shifting into luscious life


And beautiful steps of prayer

And wonder at just how bright the sun

Is when I stop to marvel.
