Mother's Blessing

In the center, flesh
at her heart
red rivers

moss feet, soft
as wildflower fields

canyons crayoned
stenciled against
mist and twilight

sky eyes, clouds
through mountains
of moonlight,

bless me tonight.

This poem is for the earth who is Mother to us all, and for my Mother, how I miss her today.

    What a lovely personification of the mother of mothers, Anna. Thanks for your suggestion "trapped" instead of confined. I have changed it,
