she waits

for her children

to drop by,


bring heaps of dirty laundry,



she waits,

silent heart


Little does she know

that when her progeny

dropped from her grasp,

one day

the sun would shine

and seed would spawn

and green grandchildren

would spring up

to fill her quiver

    My mothering is vicarious, so there’s no laundry–but I am feeding my new neighbor…

  3. Wonderful and so relatable! The dirty laudry phase is over and done with…now the green grandchild – literally, from eating the green topping from a cup cake with her whole face πŸ™‚
