Mother
I will love you always.

You are guided by
the moving love of the sun and stars-
that ancient love that warms the earth
and you have made yourself known in
the joyful exhalation of creation;

Mother
we create this world and craft our love
with apt hands, so I created a bit for you on this page
with pens and verbs and dictionaries.

Always sing this beauty to me,
sing it to me
like you did when I was young and cradled.

For when pulled apart,
I will always come back together-
