November nativity


Seals lumber ashore now
birth places bitterly contested in biting winds
matings too – bloodied blubber gives vent
milky pups fatten on the eternal teat
cries for the stillborn, the new born
gulls pick quarrels and placenta
all these breaths hang misty
at November’s numbing nativity

  1. I like that you’ve taken us to the darker side of nature, the struggles and misfortunes that we share with them in this circle of life.
