What is wanting to be born?

What is wanting to be born?


I shot this pic yesterday
as the rain steadily watered the earth.
So yes, those are water droplets you see dripping...
A unique piece in more ways than one,
I don't remember where the rough stone came from,
other than it has been in my collection for a long time.

In this void of concrete facts, 
I offer Embryo Agate as a name
that will accompany this beauty into the world.
And to me, this Embryo Agate asks...

What is alive in you?
What is waiting or wanting to be born?
How does gestation look and feel for you?
Do you shout it from the mountain tops?
"This is what I am creating!"
Or do you hold your burgeoning babe quietly within?

We are on the verge of spring
and the energy of new creation is palpable. 

So, In the timeless words of Mary Oliver...
"Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?"

I there is a calming.
