Jeannie E. Roberts | Birth…and Release

Birth

Let egg
embryo
germ

and
generation

descent
and
derivation

root
in the source
of her origin

let seed
stem
well

ripen
until

her life-force
unshackles
from shell.

 

Release

―for Mother

She lives in mist, she lives
in moon, where starlit nights
display. She lives near banks,
where currents turn, where
river’s rush is cradled,
where wilderness resides.
She lives near cliffs, where
swallows nest, where ferns
and trees abide. She lives
in Earth, where birth endures,
where permanence survives.
She lives through love,
in eyes that tear, in hearts
that gently pray, where songs
along Stonehammer lift this dust-
divining day.
