The Birth - Day 29 of Poem-a-Day

The Poetic Asides Chapbook Challenge is nearly over. I survived. Just barely.

The below poem was written for the Day 29 prompt from Bonita Jones Knott: "Write a birth poem. Write a poem on the experience of giving birth or witnessing birth, or feeling reborn in anyway."

I'm tired, so it's short. A haiku.

Her entrance from one 
world to next, awakening,
sleepless motherhood

  2. Love that juxtaposition of this sleep and sleeplessness. So much captured in this haiku, Linda.
