Woman Dreaming a Nest

By | 1 September 2013

(Title taken from a piece of art by Rachael Wenona Guy)

a dark delicate rose
the night-girdled fig
the woman dreaming a nest
is not a girl
with each finger of
winter-bare wood she splits the sky
divides a dreaming loses some part
of herself

to children
she has borne them a horizon
a mother’s gift is a kaleidoscope unfolding
the indomitable dream beating heart theatre
small puppets against a shimmering velvet
curtain of night
the woman breathes life rose pink
and delicate
and darkness comes
