Haikus On Pregnancy (Imperfect Haikus) - Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana

Umbilical Cord

The tap root of man
Permeating the soil of a goddess
On planet womb


Two heart beats
Entrapment in a body

Unwed Mother

Careless contraceptives
Or immaculate conception
Echoes of infamy


The benevolent man
And his miraculous seed
