~ Baby For Baby ~



Mythologized,in words, disguised

To energize,her hearts' replies.

Romanticized,eroticized;

Umbilical bundle of victory,prized.


This vacant hollow,of empty woman,

Cries,"mother!",within,expectant plumbing.

A joyous swaddle of coohs,and screams,

The answer to her feminine schemes.


Morning,night and afternoon,

A tiny kick inside the womb;

Taps a beat,a private tune

To synch the song,that's in her room.


Mysterious forces,knitting bone,

Inside new baby's,rent-free home;

A head,the body,a leg,the eyes,

" It's nearly time! ",tired honey sighs.


Viscera,brain,and squishy entrails;

A growing hand,with fingernails.

Fleshed-out bones,the final sign;

Look out world,a brand new rhyme.


Drug-fuelled groans,from pain within,

Precede this grandiose opening.

Curtains wide,the show begins

For sunshine,crying for mummykins.


Bedlamp,flickers a fluorescent dance,

Reveals a waiting audience;

Newborn smell,from baby's head,

Reminder,of her marriage bed.

      No, I don't think I brighten all that many days... might be something in that water over there in England that does it for you... unless of course you're just humoring me :-) But I'll go with the "you're sincere"... I like it, I like it a lot! :-) Hey, you brighten my day! Honestly, I don't know how you have time for writing all these magical pieces when you must be exhaust from beating the women of England off with a broom... though knowing your style, you probably tap them gently with a feather instead of beating 'em with a broom :-)

      Aw, thanks! Honestly... I don't even know how I fell into your pages, but I'm so glad I did. You fill in something of an empty space that not many others flirt with. You're a sweetheart too!

      Good to hear... I'll be checking up on that promise a year from now to make sure you're a man of your word... but something tells me you are! :-)

      I'm still behind... I see you have a new one out and I still need to read my chapter 2!

      Thanks again Romeo!

      No,not at all.Just think,if I hadn't read his work,and hadn't been blessed by your prompt reminder,how much poorer I would be,sweet treasure huntress.

      A thousand followers? Cat;I feel privileged to just be here,reading the manifold experiences of some pretty amazing,and extraordinary people.

      Forget you?Not a snowball's chance in hell.You were the first to greet me on here,and make me feel welcome ...I don't forget milestones like that.

      Romeos Quill,

      I hope I didn't insult your intelligence on the Epigramman note, it was just the first time I had seen him grace your pages and it took me almost a month of being here before I found him, I think I understand you well enough to assume that I did not. Also, I cannot guess your tastes, and Epi, he certainly does not follow any kind of "norm" rules, he is so creative and so different. Anyway... :-)

      You are so sweet, can't get enough! Just don't forget about me once you've been discovered and have some thousand followers ;-)

      Well,you certainly pleased this poet,and the connection is undeniably mutual.

      Regarding epigramman;I was already on the case earlier on,during the week,but thanks for the pointer,anyway;a highly talented,prolific author,and a very likeable man.

      Many thanks for your uplifting comments.

      One could wax lyrical about you,forever,and a day.

      Had to get some shut-eye(reason for delayed comment),to try and get back into a normal routine again(Like that's going to happen any time soon lol!).I think England is about five hours ahead from Canadian time.

      I'll check out your recommendation on the tube,and yes,Kate Bush,even though some people find her a bit 'strange',cannot deny that she has a beautiful,haunting singing voice,and a one-off;I often find that rare things are beautiful.

      ...And the black female artists you mentioned....all amazing artists in their own right(have to admit not hearing about Kathleen Battle-will have to remedy that fairly soon;Katherine Jenkins,I've found,if you like refined music,is a stunning-looking,talented songstress).

      Enjoy a fascinating,eventful day.

      Oh, yes, I have always been a fan of that quote, though I try to defy it's logic all the time... I live to please everyone and such unrealistic goals can be quite overwhelming. That's why it is such a relief and so rewarding to find those which you really connect with, like you! :-)

      I must also say that epigramman is quite the man, the poet, the artist! I'm so glad he has run into your pages and I too hope you find time to meander over his way. It's not often you find such talent in such a small place (i.e. you and epi).

      Much love,

      Cat

      If you like soul check out Timi Yuro on You Tube.

      And of course I simply adore Kate Bush. I remember first hearing her back in 1978 and never heard a voice like it.

      I love black gospel music and of course ladies like Janis Joplin, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughn, Nina Simone, Diamanda Galas, Karen Carpenter, Etta James, Joni Mitchell, K.D. Lang, Patsy Cline, Kathleen Battle (soprano, opera singer), Wanda Jackson ......

      Thank you,my friend,for your appraisal,which I thank God for,and pass on to Him.Hi to the rest of you folks there,as well!

      The elements here are acting similarly to where you are in your Canadian paradise;haven't seen the hockey for a while-definitely have to check out the playoffs.

      I'll soak up those good thoughts like a sponge,Colin;thanks for your generosity.

      Regarding the music.My first love;all kinds,but especially female vocalists-there's something about a beautiful,soulful singer that just captivates.I'm not a professional D.J,but have a cousin in Manchester,England,who has built up quite a successful reputation,and career doing so.

      All power to you,and again,many thanks.

      Yours Sincerely,

      Romeo's Quill

      You are an awesome 'wordplayer' and I hang on 'every one' of them because you know your craft well and know how to build up the tension through the use of narrative wit, poetic rhythm and a higher intelligence.

      We are finally receiving early summer weather here in this part of Canada and I just finished watching a playoff hockey game.

      Sending good thoughts your way from Colin, Little Miss Tiffy and Mister Gabriel -are you a DJ? What kind of music do you listen to?

      I think it was a phrase by the English poet John Lydgate,later adapted by President Lincoln(as you may know),who said,(to paraphrase),

      " You can please some of the people all of the time,all of the people some of the time,but you can't please all of the people all of the time. "(or words to that effect,anyway).

      It seems that the freedom that is commensurate with the writing, is what adds to the charm of doing so,making it more enjoyable to do..... and yes,I agree that we should never allow restrictions to curtail what is sometimes living,breathing,passionate emotion that cries out to be given birth to.

      Thanks very much.

      Aw, thanks... but you write the words that create the magic :-)

      I'm looking forward to the short story, I love your style and love reading anything you do, it should be great!

      Thanks so much for your sweet words, we can't write for everyone, but I like the freedom to just write, write about whatever I want for whatever mood I'm in. Just like you, there are different emotions for everything, why should we restrict ourselves?

      Thanks again!

      It's yourself,and folks like you that make it all worthwhile.

      Will be posting a short story,in segments,hopefully over the next few weeks.

      I always look forward to reading your work.You cut through all the b/s,and are totally realistic.It's your uniqueness that turns me on to your articles.

      Thanks very much for your amazing comments.
