Proof in Lock of Hair and Baby Tooth

Proof in Lock of Hair and Baby Tooth ‘Love you mama’ Shouts a fairy’s baby tooth set long before in a violet velvet box. ‘Miss you lots’ whispers mama, eyes fixed as she fondles the pearly bit. This kind of love so fast, no force of wind can pry from a mother’s heart hammered to pieces clumsily restored with loving epoxy and homemade patches of friends and family. Time’s stitches transform the gaping wound in scabby healing and finally the scar – another proof. ©Kathryn McL. Collins
