10th August 2017

Like a soft-boiled egg
cracked with a spoon,
thoughts dribble and congeal.
Grey clouds are drifting candle smoke.
Mocked by the drooping willow,
I gaze past my reflection in the window:
another birthday
and autumn’s on its way.

Kim M. Russell, 2017

My response to Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Tale Weaver # 131 – Birth

Michael says that we know birth as the beginning of our life journey. Birth can also be: The birth of a new idea, the birth of a nation, we can refer to a person’s birth right, we can say a person is British by birth, we can say a mother gave birth to ten children, we can talk about birth control, celebrating your birth day, refer to a person’s birth sign, refer to the importance of a person’s birthplace. This week he wants us to weave a tale using the concept of birth.
