Day 263, mother's day

I'm thankful to have a really good mom, one who as far as I remember never told me I annoyed her or that I was too much work, even when I was. She was always there, without complaint and I can't imagine life without her :)


What a many sided word

It can fill to brim when there
and leave a gaping hole all
things flow through when not.

It's a birdsong of needs
momma, momma, momma

It's spilled from tiny tongues
like a carefully placed treasure

It will evoke emotion
in any language

J'adore ma mère
Ever connected to her in
faithfulness or longing
she is, and will be
a starting place for our
centre selves, the bearer
of what's to come.
