The womb

Postby Saturn » Wed Oct 13, 2010 8:44 am

The womb

Extracted: from womb
Like a quicksilver shot
Drawn up, syringed
From the dry deep.

Reborn; like a fable
Told: the Phoenix
From it's own fiery
Grave renewed.

A new resurrection
Without a death:
A homecoming for
The men of toils.

Hope: vindicated;
When hope had
Lost hope, grit
Perseverance,

Man's spirit, and
The genius of a
Machine tamed
An impossibilty.

The womb has
Served you well
But leaving will
Not be a trauma

Of muling, tears
And sharp cuts:
But the joy felt
By all is equal.

Good stuff Saturn, I watched the drama unfold on the news.
"syringed from the deep" I like that, thanks for sharing.
Take care.

Saturn,
"The Womb" is a very powerful poem of trusted classical themes. If Dante,Homer or Shakespeare were amongst us, the Chilean event of the miners would be explored for its depths of passion; machine, man and spirit. Perhaps, a Pablo Naruda novice will arise from Chile.
Thank you for your comments about my poem, "Home to You". I was most likely in the same thinking mode as you were. In what interval of the rescue process did you write your poem? I wrote my poem within 3 hours while at the library while the rescue was in process.


peace to love,
jamiano

I wrote mine probably about the same time as you were writing yours jamiano. It is indeed a very inspiring tale; you're right about that and I'm sure other notable contemporary poets have written or will write something about it.

Great job guys. I loved reading your take on the events. Wonderful.
