Philosophia

Wisdom in each heartbeat pulsing through my veins Mending every sorrow, comforting each pain. Wisdom in each blood drop healed by Mother’s kiss, Or her tear, or stroking, or her embraced bliss Wisdom in each longing reaching from my chest, Passing through the vastness, to her ear to rest. Wisdom in each flushing—flustered, nervous, shy— […]

Mother to the Stars

With silver arms and midnight hands, she pulled in outstretched reach The lapping waves and hushed surf to bare the hidden beach. Deep from the sand, she formed a star and raised it to her breast And nursed it dear and tenderly, just as she had the rest. She helped it grow under her touch, […]

Bright Face

When I look upon her face, I see divinity. When I am alone with her, I feel affinity. Silver beams caress my face, and blue rays soothen me. As she passes sleeping earth, she nods approvingly, Gently guiding owl and wolf and ’possum, hare to see. Strength and pow’r alone she wields to pull and […]

Four Trees

Once there was an orchard small of four trees in a row. Planted by a gardener, from seedlings she did grow. Nurtured, pruned, and shepherded, a sight now to behold, Underneath their branches wide, four stories did unfold. Fruit upon the first was dark and light and soursweet. Life bestowed for years on end till […]

Hear My Voice

Queen of Heaven, hear my voice. Purge my ears of all this noise. Hear the words rise from my mouth. Grant relief to quench this drought. God of Sarah, fill my soul. Send your breath to patch this hole. Cleanse my lips with glowing coal Of the truths whitewashed I’ve told. God of ’Becca, burn […]

A Mother’s Touch

I walked with my first daughter midst life and knowledge grown To teach her truth and wisdom and lessons never known. I watched with anxious hoping as she took her first bite, Then under blade aflaming, I said my last goodbye. I sat there with the handmaid to calm her troubled heart, Allay her casted […]

A Mother There

The cool, gentle breeze, my tousling your hair. The silence of night, my calming your cares. The bubbling of brooks, my chuckling laugh. The falling of rain, my giving you bath. The crashing of surf, my humming to rest. The soft fallen snow, my dear heart expressed. The mountains so grand, my strength in defense. […]

Four births

A mother strong had birthed that day the sun, the moon, and stars. She placed each one upon the sky—the night and day apart. The waters from within her womb now baptized all the earth With rivers, oceans, lakes, and streams, all products of that birth. Another day, the mother bore all seeds of every […]

Kidnapped

Where have you gone, I ask again; my memories now lost. They stole you, hid you, while I slept—a ransom without cost. Your photos burned, your words destroyed, your voice I can’t replay. The distance grows between us now, increasing with each day. I want to see and talk with you; they tell me that I can’t. I […]
