TO ALL THE WOMEN WHO ARE JUST LIKE MOMS TO SOMEONE,
TO ALL THE MOMS OUT THERE, TO ALL THE DAUGHTERS OUT THERE WHO SEE THEMSELVES IN THIS POEM,

AND TO MY OWN MOTHER… HAPPY MOTHER’S, GRANDMOTHER’S, AND SOON-TO-BE GREAT GRANDMOTHER’S DAY!

embrace

Mother’s Nature

an instinctive  propensity to protect
to shield from the harsh realities of the world
providing shelter from the cruelties that lie beyond her embrace

within her cocoon
lies safety, comfort, and joy

 a gentle prod to go explore
a heart wrenching nod, an overzealous smile of assurance
as one step is taken with a tentative glance, then two
never looking back again

invisible tethers woven from the fabric of time
strong and secure
ready to reel in and release

an eternal place to migrate to again and again
a place called, home
