Womb

Rating: 4.8
You nurture seeds of mankind,
Nurture it with love and passion,
Hold it within your confines, and
Provide it with a safe sanctuary.

Afloat on a fluid chamber, you're
A perfect bed for a human fetus.
Dark, warm, soft and shockproof.
Solidly protected even on move.

Carrying a fetus for forty weeks,
You deliver it as a human being.
Whether conceived in love or not,
Equally you see their well being.

Oh the eternal cradle of mankind,
How can we be enough grateful!
To you and to your age old carrier,
The womenfolk, mothers for ever!

This is a wonderful tribute to women everywhere, those who have returned home to spirit and those who still struggle on in human existence. You honour them with your heart felt words. You narrate the story of human life from the moment of love-making to the moment of delivery so eloquently. You are an artist with words, dear Khairul and a master at visual detail. Very delicately woven, the words of this poem are so sensitively expressed in admiration of the opposite gender. I am indebted to you for sharing this exceptional inking. You are a v-e-r-y special poet, a poet apart from the rest! Thank you again for sharing, Khairul. Blessings...

I am overwhelmed Marie, your generous appreciation inspires me a great deal. I have'nt got enough words in my vocabulary to thank you adequately for such an extra ordinary appraisal of my poem. God Bless you dear poet!

Most men's thoughts usually miss the womb by several inches. It's a lovely poem. As The Princess says, 'Thank you for the tribute! '

'Most men's thoughts usually miss the womb by several inches' - amused by your humour, Darla. But poets are certainly a different breed. Loved your comment. Thank you too.
