"Nest" by Joann Cucinello


I offer you here the poem "Nest", written by the Poet Joanne Cucinello. It is a moving and thought provoking poem. Cucinello's blog "I See the Bridge" is full of surprises, inspired words and images.
Nest

In the warm dark waters
of my mother's womb
I swam alive and innocent
unaware that in my universe
of darkness, simple cells
were multiplying and I
would soon be filled with light.

Moment by moment
I blossomed into being
caught in the current
of pulse and rhythm
my mother's blood
pumping through tributaries
gushing and swirling like
one great river and I,
safe inside my burrowed
nest of softness.

Joanne Cucinello
