HEARTSONG by Jeni Couzyn ❤
I heard your heartbeat.
It flew out into the room, a startled bird
whirring high and wild.
I stopped breathing to listen
so high and fast it would surely race itself
down and fall
but it held strong, light
vibrant beside the slow deep booming
my old heart suddenly audible.
Out of the union that holds us separate
you've sent me a sound like a name.
Now I know you'll be born. ❤
Jeni Couzyn has written many incredible poems about birth and transformation. If you don't know her work, Iook her up 🙏
