Life Grows

Mother and Child

Birth

We all begin the same way, no one escapes birth. Every mother starts her family with birth. As we enter the world everything is new and bright. The light from the darkness and the first person we bond with, a mother. For us, birth is the beginning, there is no other way to enter this world and the mother we meet at birth is the mother that teaches us how to grow in this life.

New louder sounds enter our world for the first time and we experience touch from another human being. What a glorious beginning! Imagine the newborn with a new world, scary at first until swaddled and warm again. Growing outside of the womb is so much different than growing inside the womb and for the newborn there is no real warning of what is to come. As we hear the cries of the newborn we realize this is a rude and not comfortable awakening but we are so happy to welcome them into our world.

A Newborn

Haiku about our beginning

Deep within the darkness grows
A new life beginning
Formed and ready to meet the world.

Light shines bright everywhere
The warmth has disappeared
This is the world around you.

Sights and sounds
Much louder here
Quiet left behind with darkness.

The New World

This is the real outside
No more safety and warmth
Inside the incredible womb.

A soft breath touches your cheek
They call it butterfly kisses
As the breath glides on your skin.

A being known as Mother
She guides your life forever
No matter what your age.

The love she feels inside
Grows as she looks at you
And you bond at once forever.

Your journey has begun
Life is now yours
To live as best you can.

The Real World

Loud sounds shatter quiet
Familiar noises yet new
A voice we've heard before
The same yet somehow different

Love we can feel here
Not just a dream in the dark
Living in a new place
Happy to be alive

Life grows from conception

Sometimes birth is a rude awakening for a tiny newborn. A mother's warmth and bonding help to show there is love in the world and it starts right here! Life grows every day starting at conception and we grow as a person when we truly experience our mother for the first time together with that harsh new world that awaits us.

Yes she is Mother.

A beautiful description of that lonely trek to our reality with a welcome the way you describe:

Light shines bright everywhere

The warmth has disappeared

This is the world around you.

Sights and sounds

Much louder here

Quiet left behind with darkness

Let it speak even louder also within here. I love this.

Great work tillsontitan.

Bless.

There are no words that can match the beauty of what you've described so clearly here.

"A being known as Mother

She guides your life forever

No matter what your age."

Hello, tillsontitan,

This poem is an awesome and beautiful work of art that packs a powerful message.

In fact, this piece caused something "very deep" to come to mind: Way back when I was residing in my beautiful mother's womb, those were the best days of my life.
