Prompt 129: Beginning

Leo of I Rhyme Without Reason sends us this poem written by his sister, who also sends the image for the prompt, beginning.
Thank you, JSW and Leo!

I lay so barren
No one to care
For my soul
An empty mind
With no life
A virgin beauty
Giving birth to
Unseen hearts
I wait for love
From the hands
I hold lovingly
From those lips
Nourished daily
By my bosom
Endless a wait
For those hands
Rip my modesty
Stab my babies
Bare my heart
Without regret
Not an ear listens
To my silent plea
They continue
To ravish my soul
As each day ends
Melancholy holds
Heart in chains
Intuition senses
A return to past
Beginning beckons
As the final end

    Just in case the new link system doesn't work...

  9. Thank you guys! Andrée , I didn't know that you raised chickens. Mom raised chickens on our little Nebraska farm. She always locked them in because we had cyotes and other critters.
    That meant that we had to go round gathering all the chickens who would rather be sleeping in the trees and bring them in to security.

    Once chickens get excited it does take time before they settle down. Sort of like ...

    I am sorry that you missed church. We may not have been 'worth' that! And now we have to show ourselves 'worthy' for your good deeds.
    Thanks to Leo's sister, JSW, for the prompt.
    And I had to put my blog link instead of the post link as it must make "+"s out of my "%"s.
    Again, thank you so very much, :)

  10. Hi Andrée - I love my wife Kathy, and enjoy nothing more than looking at her beautiful face -- but I don't want her impersonating me, so I hope next time I post I can get my photo up... ;)
