The Day When All Are Mothers

Today is Mother’s Day,
Inviting me to be more feminine
As I give birth to this poem….
Touch the mighty tenderness within,
Explore the resilience, the curls of light,
Dissolve with love the desolation of the world,
Learn a new landscape of deeper kindness,
Let go of the need for logic to inform.
Slowly, I unfold my heart as a cloth carefully
Hidden in a drawer, waiting for the time,
Which is eternally now, when shoes are removed….
All are invited to come share the bread and wine.
The crowd of the world is made welcome and
Everyone is loved as a child.
