Born Again

Nine months,
nine years,
nine centuries
Birth is imminent
Water is retained in preparation

until a day of pain and beauty
dawns on the horizon

Damns burst
in an immense intensity of pain
as deep emotions
run like a river
through her being

and love, at last
is born
just then
when like the number ten
we start again . . .
