My body knows something I don’t
Industriously creating the conditions
for a life to thrive, to flourish
Weaving together the cocoon
The unknown triggers feeling of
fear, of frustration in me
How many heartbeats dwell within?
Will this body be knit together like
I tell myself to breathe, to rest
in the ‘not knowing’
Performing daily rituals to
honour the life that grows,
and sustain the body
that is making it possible.
Bowing head to the One
who is the Ground
