what are the words (for mothers’ day)

ponders myself


A day that’s already bled in

(365 times Hallmark)

to our psyches’ movement

through mountained plains

perpetual translating

of the countenanced refrains

that echo

after birth.


The depth obfuscated, unsung


we play punctiliously with undone


and the cardium layers hold hands


tremoring with the ache

of a thousand forms.


For nothing is what it seams

we wake from wrongly so/ewn dreams

in that cold sweat of generations

we honour with strange venerations

those undeserving.


And there’s no way to finish these lines

kaleidoscoped mystery of a child’s eyes…


My beautiful mother in the 60s before she was married. Always loving on everyone. One of my biggest regrets was never recording her angelic singing voice. She won’t let me now! We’ll see…



    1. Hi Davy!
      Thank you!
      Mothers’ Day is complex, isn’t it? I’m so grateful for my parents but days like this can be so hard for many, for so many reasons. A bit like Valentine’s Day, which I don’t celebrate.
      But I think that loving, nurturing, kind qualities should be honoured in our harsh world. As well as the extraordinary process of literally growing a human!!
      And not just on one day… 🙂

  1. Of course I don’t celebrate Mother’s Day with my mother.
    I love reading things like this from people who have good relationships with loving mothers, makes my heart have hope

    1. Hi! Thank you so much for commenting ❤ I am so glad if it does give you hope! I have mixed feelings about the way social media is flooded on days like this. Or maybe, it's more the way that it is done.
      This day is quite often filled with pain, as you know, 😥 which I was hoping to reflect a little.
      I think anyone who invests in the nurturing of others should be honoured. Ugh we do waste a lot of time and resources honouring the wrong people imho. Sacrificial love inspires me. And I think it should be honoured every day!

    1. Thank you Stephen! Likewise. And I love that you love it, thanks!
      And those kaleidoscope eyes, capturing the profound connection between mother and child, no matter the circumstance. Something that should inspire the deepest reflection in us always imho.
