Beginnings: A Found Poem



A poem found in the big sort out


To begin  a new thing

one has to bring about Beginnings

the end of earlier things -

Conception is the end

of one affair

and the beginning

of another

Birth is the end

of a secret inner affair

and the beginning

of love out in the open -

lasting a lifetime

And so on, back to Eve

though even she engendered

the demise of Adam’s spare rib

  1. I love this Wendy - especially the surprise at the end! Turning things out has been such a creative move - I'm thinking you should be collecting your poetry now and thinking of publication ?? It would be a lovely project
