Rebirth takes on a whole new meaning with this one Anne.

Incredible imagery, Anne. Of course, you've got me breathing in Lamaze Stage Two at the literal (eeeyikes) but gads, the pain is endured for something better to come from it.

Lots said in these lines Anne - superbly expressed!

the simplicity speaks volumes....what can hurt a woman more than tearing open her womb?

Beautifully compact and deep. So few words can say so much. Thanks for sharing.

A superb Haiku to remember. Especially love the second line... and hope the last is prophetic. Excellent, Anne. Thanks for this sterling gift.

Amazing how a few words can say so much when a skillful poet is at work. Good stuff.

WOW Anne...powerful stuff...the imagery, the PAIN you evoke with your word choices is so achingly present, "Unsedated...A caesarean," and the rebirth so vividly emerging from the pain, "Unsedated pain...divorce...rebirth." This is wonderful wonderful! Truly a Haiku with a lesson to learn...rebirth is in the dying...and hope is in the rebirth...I really enjoyed this as I have ALL the works I've read by you. EXCELLENT! :-)
