' And, The Sacrifice ' - Poem by Ency Bearis

[ in tanka format series ]

panting, gasping breath
in table of surrender
with sour faced mother
in exertion of push - push
sacrifice ritual it may

then whoosh - newborn's cry
the shrillness of sound, tuneful
mother gladly heard
the iambic rhythm of sound
melodious new life music

minutes to the world
with this naive simple charm
took away the pain
and with smile of the mother
who had sacrificed birthing
