The Love in Your Eyes

2009 May 10
by J. Scott Mosel

                                 for Ana Rina

Time was once a fluttering birddsc_0782
inside your body, a flicker
that sends the love in your eyes
the unwritten commands that make
you a mother.
                             They sleep
apart from you now, in beds
warm with their own little
lights.
             When they dream
you can sense them in your own
guarded sleep, for your love
has built invisible threads of starlight
which the angels use to safely guide
every wish you hold for them

to their waiting souls.

    Scott, This is very nice. A very nice Mother’s Day poem. Good work.

    Thank you Grace. It’s always been a lift for me when I write for those I love.
