They followed up this announcement with so many lovely new and old pictures from their archives in conjunction with a beautiful poem about motherhood, written by Warsan Shire.
In the poem, she made references to elements that can also be seen represented in the new pregnancy photos released on her website- flowers, water, Venus the brightest planet on the solar system and a sister planet to earth, Nefertiti- an Egyptian queen and great royal mother of Akhenaten, Osun- a deity seen as a manifestation of a god in Ifa and Yoruba religions and Yemoja- a water deity also from the Yoruba religion, known as the mother of all Orishas, having given birth to the 14 Yoruba gods and goddesses. See Pictures and read full poem below.
Mother is a cocoon where
cells spark, limbs form,
mother swells and stretches to protect her child,
mother has one foot in this world and one foot in the next,
mother, black Venus.
I look at the photographs of my mother when she was pregnant with me,
does she feel how i feel now?
Venus falls in love, flowers grow wherever love touches her,
this is how she is reborn.
I’m watching life inside me grow;
there’s life growing inside of me and I’m beside myself with dreams.
Was it your voice I heard? you speak to me from inside me.
I have three hearts.
In the dream I am crowning Osun, Nefertiti and Yemoja- pray around my bed.
I can smell jasmine, I wake up as someone places a wreath upon my head.
Venus has flooded me, second planet from the sun.
I wake up on her foamy shore.
she wants to take me to meet my children.
I’ve done this before I’m still nervous.
