Boy

28 Sep

When the children grow….

 

Eyes still embrace like a Madonna

The touch of your skin longing fills

My boy

 

Can you grow like a seed, gradual?

Progress like a breeze, no storms yet,

They can wait, living can wait

 

Let me play my role

It has only now begun to fit

And already you make up your mind

 

And unmake whom I found?

    so many nuances of feeling, how could it be otherwise when a parent, esp a mother, sees the child grow 😉 words like silk wrapping in strands in the changing breeze
