About Birth, by pd lyons


the first meeting

sky and earth

begot ice


the first meeting

sun and ice

begot the wordless woman


she alone with open mouth

barefoot of silence

taught the earth

all there ever was to know


Picture 146

      thanks Dottie m. this one was inspired by the work of Billie Hanne’s Dance Piece – Map of Antarctica. I am working on a longer piece inspired by the same. this is a kind of excerpt. hope to also have a public video link soon to the dance to go along with the poem. thanks for tuning in.

      thanks you for saying so. the “longer one” will include this piece, it will be a loosely joined inspired by the dance.
