mother's day!

"a mother's love liberates".
maya angelou

on this - mother's day in north america -
i honour my mother
no more than i usually do mind you

because i have a deep respect for my mother
who was difficult
when i needed a "difficult" mother
but didn't know it

easy going and supportive
when i needed
an easy going
and supportive mother
but had no clue why

was and is loving -
without condition
whether i knew it
or not
(and of course i now know!)

and somehow she knew i'd figure so much of this out
and be alright.

it's very cool
to arrive at a place
of genuine mutual appreciation
and mutual admiration.

happy mother's day mum!

with love from steven

She is lovely, Steven. Her light shines through you. She must be very proud of her thoughtful handsome son!
