Something about birth? Like, I think I could write something describing it but it would not be as intense, because I've never had a baby before so I dont exactly know how it feels! lol I could ask my mom!!!!!! WOOT! So hmm suggestions...
-Happiness!! Ahh sheer happiness!

On a funnier note..glue would be awesome..OMG and cheese! I could totally do something about cheese! And since I'm studying for exams, I could do crap on that! haha we're gonna have so much fun with this!

I don't think that the suggestion was supposed to be interpreted exclusively as giving birth to a baby. The subject of birth can be interpreted in many ways, rebirth of a person, birth of religion, birth of a new life, the birth of love, or happiness. Think deeper than what you see on the surface. That will help your poetry :D

( It'd be a pretty fun project to write about something like cheese, maybe we should ! A nice break from the intellectual. )

Thank you for your suggestions.

Well, it is one of the great accomplishments of modern civilization, and not just the gouda's and fancy peppered cheeses either, common household polly-o has layers we have only just begun to unravel.

The birth of cheese dates back to about 7000 years before Christ, where it was first discovered that milk coagulates in warm weather. Men quickly fell in love with the exquisite taste of cheese and word spread about this new-found milk pudding. Soon after, people tried to come up with their own type of cheese with other mammal's milk and starters from various sources. To date, there are over 650 different types of cheese from countries, including those that originate from places you might never have imagined: Afghanistan, Eastern Mediterranean, Iraq, etc...

( I can see a poem coagulating in my mind already )

Cheese has a legendary history dating back to the area of the world known as the Middle East thousands of years before the birth of Christ. Legend has it that cheese was discovered by an unknown Arab nomad. He had filled a saddlebag with milk to sustain him on his journey across the desert by horse. After several hours of riding, he stopped to take a drink and discovered that the milk had seperated into pale watery liquid and solid white lumps. Because the saddlebag was made from the stomach of a young animal, contained the coagulating enzyme known as rennin, the milk had been seperated into curds and whey by the combination of the rennin, the sun, and the motion of the horse. The nomad was not too concerned with these details, though. He enjoyed the whey as a drink and ate the curds. Fact or fiction, the birth of cheese probably happened in a very similar manner to the story of the nomad. But if you are interested in more history, including the fact that cheese was mentioned in the Old Testament, go here....
