Awaiting Birth

Standing there

Photo by Mark Burtch for Nine Year Pregnancy.

in her blue cotton dress

She blew on the stem

until every seed took flight

as tiny bubbles

floating on the morning breeze

landing on earth’s soft floor

each one waiting to be born,

to grow, to die, to be plucked by

another hand in a neighboring land

to take flight once more.
