My Mother

Who creates a positive atmosphere
Is always
Cooking continuously while periodically checking
In with
The Food Network; her favorite channel.
Flour and
Yeast in one had and remote in
The other.
She doesn’t want to miss a thing.
Her hands
Are warm and soft like silk yet wrinkled
And tiered.
She has been through a lot,
But yet
I ask, why so protective?
