Her Breast Of Love

Jilly’s 28 Days Of Unreason Poetry – Day 22

Write a poem inspired by this quote:

“The world that used to nurse us now keeps shouting insane instructions. That’s why I ran to the woods.”  Jim Harrison from Songs of Unreason

Cold Stone World

I’ve known the world to
nurse some and reject others
like an unwanted child
leaving them homeless and hungry
and wishing they would drop off
the face of this earth…

The insane attitudes have always
been the same…they never change
only now they are louder and more
provocative…love the rich hate the poor
making it harder for the poor to
survive in this cold stone world…

Is it no wonder we revert
back to Mother Nature
a Mother who accepts her
rejected children for who they are
and offers Her breast of love
to nurse the dispirited souls
that are so beautifully flawed.
