Poem In Praise Of Menstruation

Rating: 3.4
if there is a river
more beautiful than this
bright as the blood
red edge of the moon if
there is a river
more faithful than this
returning each month
to the same delta if there

is a river
braver than this

It's hard to look at menstruation as a happy thing, but your poem does make it sound very lyrical. Thanks for sharing.

ha...such a brave narrative of the flow that is never a sitting room topic.....years it was hushed....under the veil of women's burden....Thanks poet for lifting this curtain and bringing out the mosaic of rainbow woman.

Wow. Never thought I could like a poem about menstruation. Instead of viewing as a curse the poet finds the beauty in the knowing that without this monthly tpritual, life as we know it can not exist. Wonderful write!

I love your poetry ms. Clifton, however my wife used to have a problem with fibroids, which made her monthly cycle into a sunami, she might not agree with the premise.

Love the lyricism in this poem - it's a great one to recite. Erhard, you don't get it: women are strong because of/ inspite of our bodies. Menstruation doesn't hold anyone back - except a few men with hangups.
