Photography and Poetry - Michael Clift

, originally uploaded by Margaret (Degserella).

Following on from my last post, here is a poem Michael composed for the birth of my daughter Cora, who was born in the water on 30 November 2007. The poem had me in floods of tears by the time I had read the last word, it was so evocative of the moment of her birth!


Bubble born
sleeping still
swirlpool swim
and breathing,

you are here

born of triumph,
born from desire
aching on,
you are held

The best way,
The right way

Only of love
