A Poem by Marie Harrison

an ABC poem




























Quiet Moments


Sunlight beaming through the slanted shutters

Tiny dancing dust particles floating mid-air

Underneath desk a sleeping dog snores

Vanishing baby dreams

In my quiet moments, they haunt me

This suggests to me infertility problems "Vanishing baby dreams In my quiet moments, they haunt me" the grieving womb for the child that never was or could be. This is the saddest thing in all creation the woman who desires to bear a child but is unable to. A peaceful and otherwise enjoyable day except for the pain of the unfulfilled womb. This one really hit me. exceptional write.
