Poem : A Giant at Two Feet

bbol

Namaste,

…to carry another human being, that process of pregnancy  is such a multi-dimensional experience involving the environment, the body, the emotions of your mind, your intellect and in learning to love, a spiritual endeavour as well and Life. Writing became a grounding tool during pregnancy.Letters were written to Rocky as well as poems and perceptions of some experiences during pregnancy. I continue to write to this day and it proves still, to be a grounding tool. Maybe it can be that for you…

 

A Giant at Two Feet

You curl the ends of your lips.

Your knees grace the earth.

You gaze to find the moon.

You take a step

And

My

 Whole

World

Shakes.
