Mother

From the womb
Your palms nurture
The belly
Life springs
From the cocoon
You count the fingers
And the toes
Truthfully only
Heaven knows
The secrets of
The one in tow
You marvel at
The beauty
Of this Godly being
Nestling under
Your wondrous wings
Children's laughter
Blissfully sings
The joys
Of motherhood

Happy Mother's Day to all of you!!!

Should've caught this gem of yours last weekend. You pour so much into so few words. It's impressive and warming at the same time. Very lovely poem.
