Birth / Rebirth


how must it feel

to be warmly embraced in the womb

immersed one minute

then whisked to the light the next

for the first time

breathe…cry…see

every moment a revelation

swaddled in blankets

laid on breast

of the one who loved you first and always

that heartbeat you have known

like a drumbeat in the darkness

homing beacon in blaring light

how strange to be born into a new world

from another who has nurtured

from your first moment of life

at what point are we aware

of our beginning

will our ending be the same, I wonder…

not death we fear

but rebirth from this world, our womb

into the next
