Just How It Is (Or Something Like That)

Writing
poetry is somewhat like
giving birth, but without the significant pain.

The
thought pregnant
occurs, growing in the mind until

In
due course
it is pushed out, crowning

Then
full force to be
observed by the nursing room staff.

Your
feet may be in the
stirrups, but you can't gallop away

And
like the joke...if the newborn is
ugly enough, it's the parent that gets slapped!

Many of our cards are also available as art prints…
the perfect blend of poster and prose
suitable for framing.
