Okay, so I'm a bit confused by this Poetry Jam thing but I'm presuming its just the word B-U-S spelt J-A-M, and we have to write whatever the prompt is.
This week the inaugural jam prompt, given to us by the lovely Chat d'eau Vicki, is simply BIRTHDAY.
Okay, I've cheated a bit and surreptitiously inserted a space between letters 5 and 6
We’re really looking forward to meeting you,
and we wish you a comfortable birth.
There is nothing to fear –
it’s not too bad out here.
We’ll be waiting whenever you decide to appear
for we’ve saved you a place on this earth.
And we’re really looking forward to meeting you.
We’re not going to make you any promises,
Let’s sort this whole birth business first.
We don’t have a plan
but we’ll do what we can
to make sure you become a fine woman or man.
But believe us, we’ve nothing rehearsed,
so we’re not going to make you any promises.
We’ll be there at the start of your journey,
and we’ll walk by your side for a while.
So when you want to come out,
just give us a shout –
there really is nothing to worry about.
I am sure that you’ll do it with style
and we’ll be there at the start of your journey.
You probably won’t recognise us,
but don’t worry, we’ll recognise you.
In our dreams, we can trace
every line on your face –
there are many dimensions undreamt of in space.
It’ll all be exciting and new
but you probably won’t recognise us.
