Poem for Mother

 

Mother

Giver of life

Breathing softness

Gentle…

That small life

May grow

 

Protector

Fierce bear!

Deepest compassion

that no hand may harm

the young one

 

Delighting her with play

that she may want to explore

 

Teaching

of feelings

rhythms within

of relations

rhythms between

 

She gives the greatest kindness…

the Love

that brings forth

a new person

 

Blessed be

the mothers

and the mothering

giving us life!
