Ode to my mother today!


                         Ode to My Mother  – To Joy

                  When she was here in fragile form,
        She was as graceful as the curved spine of Kokopeli,
                                         Playing a flute -

          We rode her gentleness like the back of a whale -
                        Her last words,  “so very good,”
            As she sipped from a glass of chocolate milk,
                                        Then rose to prepare -

         She holds the portal open for me so I can see,
                        Bounces me from her hand like a yo yo –
                                 Of time and space, I am free -

                                            and now
                                                     and now

                   I bow to the liquidity of energy
                                        blown like sand to glass
