My mom

I think she knows a thing
about living, of love, a generous line
She builds shelters from sand,
mixes sugar with water for humming
bird wine. In her home she sets
shells out for wayward crustaceans. She 
builds lean-tos of palm fronds and plantains, 
sea glass and chards; she photographs 
chalice blooms. Her cupboard doors
are lined with fingerprint dreams - 
maps of unchartered seas, blue
and green.  Yet the wind finds
its way in, through louvered 
screens. It hides by the bookshelves
counting pennies and seeds. 
Each night, still she sets 
out her intention, shakes out 
the sheets, and sighs 
into the wind.

through his mom he has come to know me 
and my disability.I couldn't get off the toilet in his house as there were no hand rails
I asked his mom if the young man 20,would be uncomfortable giving me a pull up
she said if I was ok with it he would be too.Nick came to the door and flexed his muscles
to pull this large woman up,i saw  such pride in his moms heart sank having to
have to ask him for the help.As my visit continued with his mom in the coffee shop.Nick
must have called 20 times to ask if I needed my eyes filled with pride to know
such a fine young man when so much is wrong with the youth today.God bless America,God
Bless Nick
