The Birthing Bed #julyfalls

‪Silence from the raven‬

‪Perched on the post‬

‪Of the birthing bed‬

‪As the smells of earth‬

‪Copper and sweat‬

‪Fill the air‬

‪And an onyx stone‬

‪Warmed by flesh

‪Between a woman’s breasts‬

‪Welcomes the babe‬

‪And the raven squawks‬

‪With its very first breath‬
