Uncover The Sun

Mother’s Day


The earth holds the bones

of every tree that ever held

leafy children aloft


and the ashes

of every human mother

that ever nursed a babe


and the fur of every mammal

that ever carried

their young front to back


and the shells of every turtle

that ever guided

offspring to the sea


and the skins of every reptile

that ever hatched

tiny slitherlings


and the feathers of every bird

that ever nested

their brood


the earth gently holds the bones

of every child

ever created
