Once upon a Mother

On and on, the memorial counting
Upon your epitaph in our looking

We know your womb formed missions
Your back carried visions
And your breast fed nations 

Dear mother, even though short
Your passage’s engraved on the earth.

    Well the weekend is upon us and I am trying to get as many poems read as possible today as I will be gone most of the weekend from the Soup. I enjoyed reading your poetry today and I wish you a wonderful weekend filled with inspiration Olusegun. Love, Carol
