Waiting for creation

Does the creative womb
stop in time
stand still.....

Or is it ever active
nourishing the gift
even as the artist waits impatiently for the birthing

God's season of darkness,
of patience, of wombs,
of nevertheless prolific stirring

The womb of holiness 
does not cease to nurture
even in the silence

It works with the whole of creation,
awaiting the birth
ready or not, it will come


  1. This is a lovely evocation of the mystery.

  2. You seem to be in a lovely waiting time. I wish you a joyous birthing :-)
