Mother of Worlds

by fyarlgiles


Our mother


split in two by the thunderous rattle

of new worlds coming forth.

They pushed through her

and emerged with bright expressions.

New minds flooded with milky dreams

of power

Now, she floats in  a blissful sleep,

 forever drained of


and strength

but delighted

 by the sound of young chests, pulsing with new life

around her

in an orbit

 of her own creation

Show Him Every Star

by fyarlgiles


For the first time,  I cradle him

he is dense and warm like a loaf of  freshly baked bread

The smell of life


to take shape

envelops me in a puff


coral wind

as  planets curl and twist

on the horizon

 I show him where the soil turns

and softens in the rain

so that beauty may bloom

He too

was once a bud

waiting to come forth

in the tender light of June
