Womb to World Poetry by Meghan Spiro

a series beginning…

paradise on fire
bleeding hearts
for the wounds that cling

violent contractions
the blood that shifts paradigms

womb to world
struggling to breath
then we arrive
we voice our first cry

hearts open
hearts bleeding
hearts needing
the mother

traumas
travel through
to the next generation
until we welcome the revelations

the revolutionary path
begins within

reactionary
arrested
listen
for the blessed

hearts bleed in solidarity
transforming collectively
voicing our cries
with intelligent eyes

ending ancestral rhythms
unlearning the old conditions
reckoning the longing for the safety of the womb

every heartbeat
an act of love
bloody
breathless
until we cry
on the other side

~by Meghan Spiro
The womb
where we ruminate
ancestral aches wake

Sit in the silence
Cry to the violence
Darkness consuming
Renew

To the blood
That soaks these sheets
To the hateful hands
To the mothers who birth new
Tip the scales

The scales…
inescapable
Unbreakable

prisms
cast projections
in all expressions
Horrifying
inspiring

Evolutionary spirals churning
One blood
One soul
One love

Amongst the tangled roots
Every cycle, a prayer to release a knot
Karma
