On this first morning in March, I feel like an egg.
All of spring’s potential gathered into one potent, delicate container.
I am incubating. Not yet to the hatching stage (and that will certainly take some pecking), I’m in some molecular metamorphosis.
It’s womby, warm and dark in here. Safe and unfinished.
Not yet completely cooked, I simmer slowly while a whole new world is promised.
I am a trajectory evolving, spiraling and spilling over the sidelines of linear time.
Until that perfected moment, when the mystery of life culminates. Collides with time and space.
Or something like that…

I want to have a chicken coop thanks to your lovely description of the egg and the incubating. Bah, wonderful.
Yes! A collective evolution! Thanks for chiming in. Aloha!
Good choice of illustration. (such great contrast of texture in the monochromatic colors – emphasizes the shape of the egg and the chaos of the background)
Kudos go to my eight year old who took the shot. Thanks for your comment! Aloha!
