Poem for Mother



Giver of life

Breathing softness


That small life

May grow



Fierce bear!

Deepest compassion

that no hand may harm

the young one


Delighting her with play

that she may want to explore



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!
