For our Mothers …

15

for our mothers
who have brought us here,
the mothers whose songs
trail the ocean floor
for miles and centuries
as we ache for the beauty
of genesis, origin, her strength,
for the mothers of our mothers,
the mothers waiting to be mothers,
waiting to be …
and we are all daughters
of this one earth,
and we are all mothers
for plumbing the depths
of knowing where we have been
as we mount the steps
to where we are going,
and the love Great Mother
wraps itself around us
as we go ___
