Miz Quickly 13: Word – DELIVER

From feeble first stirrings

to agonizing birth

I pushed each word

I pushed

until it crowned

labored more

then it arrived

a bouncy poem.

It cried with a lusty

voice and thrived.

(This is reworked from an older poem.)

  1. A very evocative delivery. Excellent metaphor.

    Very clever, Debi. I really like your use of metaphors in this one.

    I love this, Debi! Although I only had Caesarean sections. Maybe that explains something about my poems. (I rather hope not. 🙂 )

  4. Birthing a poem can be so difficult. Having never given birth, I can only appreciate one side of the wonderful metaphor.
    “Attended the births of animals,” she said, “including being the mid-wife for a sow. But missed out on being more than an observer. I do struggle to deliver, but nothing as incredible as a tiny life.”
