Lemon Grass Lessons

In the home of my
mother
Her children would
sit around a yellow
wood table
At the end of empty
bellied days

Drinking lemon-grass
tea
With herbs pulled
from the dark soil
of my mother's
garden

These are words my
mother said at that
table
My children
Our tomorrows are
always chances to
right our yesterdays

Lemon-grass tea
would warm the end
of empty bellied
days
The sunshine
strength of my
mother's love would
warm empty hearts

My mother's child
Now sits at a yellow
wood table under
different skies
Drinking still my
mother's love
And my mother's
wisdom in
lemon-grass tea

Our tomorrows are
always chances to
right our yesterdays
