Keeping Embers Alive (Revised)

Expelled from the womb
Unrestrained passion
Ignited and inflamed
Breeds
An ever burning fire
None can quench
Destroying the seed
Equals silence in ashes
Our own cries yet hushed
While haunted and untamed
Ever searching
Even gardeners plant in season
Rejoicing in good fruit
I was asked to write a tighter,  more succinct version of this poem. I started removing words,  but wanting to keep to the form of a quadrille,  I added some,  changing it up a bit. I think it says more now what the effects of abortion are,  not only on the child,  but on the rest of us.

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.
