Happy Mothers' Day


A public domain photo


Happy Mothers' Day

From the sweet lips of 
the mouth of the Universe 
flies a vow soft as the drone 
of butterfly chants floating
through time and space 
binding under the one shared
sun the promise to answer 
the circling wish of women 
filling with infant velvet the 
voided crook of empty arms 
opening the fist of a wanting heart
as each mother falls headlong 
into that cave of echoing love - 
filled forever

    1. Marian - Honestly I don't know where these come from - the wordle words obviously provide enough of a prod to unleash some unconscious process - I often say that I feel like the transcriber more than the writer. Thank you so very very much.
