Chapter One~ Birth~ My tiny Green Eyes

From the moment I opened
My tiny Green Eyes.
My first peircing cries,
gasping for air to humanize
this new vehicle~ now defined
in this skin that binds
me to the Earth~ energy,movement,sences
hog tied
stupified, I have been compartmentalized
Into this flesh, now I must begin to reorganize
my thoughts,what am I?
questions blindside
I must learn to connect~ objectify
what it means to be modified, socialized
I can feel my connection to the Earth the Air, the Tide
magnetized, mesmerized
Yet~bound in newborn confines
I cry and cry
for nothing I say comes out right!
FRUSTERATED! I search for any comforting sight
finally ~ warm hands, soothing words, then flight,as I am lifted from darkness
and carried into the light
Offered refreshment;liquid,warm,& spiked
with love& with spirit& ties that bind
Ancestors& bloodlines
pass down the vine
questioning the undefined
boundries of the universe~ unconfined
nurishment,contentment,soft breast heartbeat,of this Mother of mine
by the people who show love to me
"Family" clarified
This woman,who calms with coos& sighs with the man by her side
I'm safe,I'm connected,I have a new tribe
To comunicate~ I just pout, whine& cry
Someone comes quickly to figure out why
They bounce,they sing,& they feed me
as They dry My tiny Green Eyes...

This is excellent. I love the rhythm and the way rhyme adds to the flow. I can tell you worked hard on this one. It was worth the effort.

Excellent poem, Michelle of those first days when we are welcomed to this planet. It must be confusing at best I would think. I love the poems that flow with unforced rhyme.
Take care,

You must be inspired for sure. Thank you for sharing this gift. Love and peace to you, Michelle.

This is packed with wonderful images, but it is the rhyme that really catches my attention. Fabulous.
