giving birth is painful but the joy after it is amazing
Cool picture. I've always thought that pregnant ladies are beauties.
I felt very beautiful pregnant. I found the image striking.
Nicely written haiku LaTonya ... thank you for sharing.
I love the whole idea of the earth as womb, watering new vines.......
This is a great haiku.. talks and give a message...
"womb waters new vines" - amazing image
with a few strokes you unveil much
I love all the sounds you have infused in the lines of the haiku. The images and textures are very appealing to the senses.
...Womb waters new vines...BEST line I've read today. Wonderful.
So very lovely...words and image.
Well, pregnant with poems... still beautiful!
Beautiful image here, La Tonya
Protects and nurtures. There is a reason she's called Mother Earth. Beautiful.
My mother never told me about this. ..
beautiful... so much spoken in these few lines.
Thank you all. Kerry, I lean into sound. Always nice to hear others' something, too.
I know this poem is close to your heart, LaTonya. I was a September baby and so was Riley, but the watering of the vines continues for your daughter. LOVE the image you chose. Truly a reminder of sisterhood. Peace, Amy
Not much I can say that hasn't already been said! Loved it, and it pairs so beautifully with the image!
