    Mother

    Mother

    Mother, you held hope

    for me in your bosom.

    And my father was to be

    the one who expects.

    But, hope without expectation

    sabotages concrete action.

    You hoped, and cheered for my survival.

    And, oh how gloriously that has continued…

    But, something was missing…

    So, I added my own expectations.

    The fruitfulness of that has manifested.

    I understand.  Be at peace, be proud.

    I love you, mom.  Happy Mother’s day.

    Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.
