Mother's Day

to become a mother is to
become inextricably enmeshed,
at times unwillingly, at times
joyously with the ones
who emerged form our bodies,
crying out for their first breath
in this new world of light
and sound.
there is no day, no hour
from this moment forward
where our hearts beat in solitude,
no matter where in the world
they are, our hearts beat
for and with them.
