Guest of the Womb

The womb is not a void

A protective enclosure for the August Guest

Round and soft with an ecosystem all of its own

Self-sustaining and living a life different than of its owner

Protecting its august guest

That gentleman and lady

Floating in comfort but safely linked

To source of food, water and shelter

Oblivious of the outside world

Yet no need to be concerned

For the outside world is outside

At least for the moment

It wakes and sleeps

In waking it feels the movement of its vehicle

Mother moving to and fro

It enjoys the movement

For it reminds it of a swing

Playful already from the womb

Swing me again mother

Oh mother!

Hahaha, the baby laughs softly but without words

Sucking thumb and giggling

Sharing a private joke



Hey, I'll like to hear from you - drop a line :)
