GESTATE

A Seed Thought
arises in the Body.

Seed meets Dirt
and the Life turns on.

In the Dark
where none can know,
Earthened Seed begins to grow.

Asleep in a Dream
for a timeline or a cycle,
until the New be fit to burst.

A Green Shoot
curls up in the warm Womb.
A spine congeals,
puts out ribs,
fruits a brain.

A Red Pulse
springs in the cool Cave.
A species disperses,
flourishes,
variegates.
