I came from


I am the unanswered question
Spawn of life
Coming from disciplines un-harnessed.

From animated matter
a normal miracle of conception,
under perfect physical and chemical conditions.

I was the infant unknown
A child to be,
a woman someday in time.

I am the emergence of biological complexity.
I am the first born child, I came from young love.



For Sunday Scribblings...I came from.

I hope there isn't a penis in that picture- I couldn't tell!

  4. I loved the way those words built upon themselves and created a visual that didn't even need the picture. Very nice indeed.

  6. wonderful take on the prompt. If you are not sure there is a penis, there probably isn't. That wisdom can continue through life.
