you who have birthed
a million poems...
 
whose eyes have seen
whose hands have touched
whose lips have tasted
life
reconciled
to self...
 
whose written words
teach
untaught songs...
 
whose unique
voice
beautifully
tenderly
gathers
what has remained
shapeless within...
 
whose experiences
of life
and
mind
has shaped the spirits
and
souls of countless breaths
spilt
upon the tireless
altar
of existence...
 
you
who have chosen
to give birth
giving life
from life
even
snatching
what life remains
from the silence
of
deafening death...
 
thank you
dear sister
poet
for carrying
full term
these little
parts
of yourself
hidden
in plain view
these mysteries
of your soul
your hopes
and
dreams
your pain
and
regrets
conveyed
mercifully
across
the
abstract
void...
 
thank you
dear sister
poet
for giving shape
to the emotions
that few
and
all
can identify with...
 
thank you
dear sister
poet
for letting us see
and
touch
these precious parts
of you
that we now carry
within ourselves...
 
our empty hands
now blessed to know
what it is they hold
when they hold
nothing
which is to say...
 
...everything
 
For All That You Do
and
For How You Do It...
 
Happy Mothers Day
Dear Sister Poet

giving birth to tears
as they draw salt from air
pressing hard and squeezing
wringing the heart with words
tissues are to gentle
-thank you
