    Salmon migratory journey
    Born into a woman's open sea
    Returning to the river of her birth
    Migration triggered by hormonal changes

    ****

    Woman's migration modifies
    Metabolism to create a need first for salt water
    Then for fresh water again
    Time to spawn

    ****

    Woman navigates by Sun
    Until she enters familiar coastal waters
    Using phenomenal sense of smell to locate
    Precise river of birth.

    ****

    Women's annual superabundance
    Make them totemic species
    Representing death and rebirth
    Fecundity, courage, purposeful wisdom and foresight

    ****

    Pairs of leaping women
    Transformed into salmon
    Dance beneath the waves
    Giving headwaters

    ****

    Women and salmon
    A delicacy to be eaten as sacred life-giver
    Divine transformation and migration of her soul
    Linking fish with the idea of liberty or escape

    Hi SAGESWEETWATER

    1st - Welcome to the JPiC Community - Glad to have you along for the ride!

    2nd - AMAZING stuff you've shared with us - I love the analogies that are in each of these pieces. Kinda reminds me of a collection of haiku I did a while back...

    Anyway - It's some nice wisdom and love of natural elements that make this collection quite powerful - It's like showing appreciation to Mother Earth while showing love for Earth Mother.

    I like AND look forward to more from you!
    Thanx for sharing

    Jacquii.

    btw - If you haven't done so - go ahead and introduce yourself to the Community via the Member Introductions forum :yes:

    Yes, I agree, beautiful depiction of Naure's Salmon Migration to be analogous to women migrating naturally to find others (dancing with salmon)!! Very powerful, with much strength in your sexuality. The spacing gives the poem the feel of, take yur time, and "savour" what you are reading. I imagined salmon dancing and jumping in their waters of rebirth. Loved it!
