Happy Mother’s Day


Lovely Sophie fresh

from the womb

breast, chest

shoulder, belly

this is your room.

All of us dance

happy around you.

And as you sleep

is that a dream

or just digestion

crossing your face?

or perhaps

the sensation

of being new

which has entered us too

having prepared and counted

and gotten what we wanted

we’re reeling with shock

at the palpable pureness

the disequilibrium of

loving you.

– Susan Griffin (1997)

Happy Mother’s Day to grandmothers, mothers, daughters everywhere. Educate your daughters; teach them to nurture life, as Mother Earth nurtures us all.
