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
