A Poem For My Son

mother’s day

when you were born

my days

were suddenly full

of trees and apples

of hope

and the machinations of terror

I conceived of space

my world became

the size of a seed

pointed and round

no intruders

a harvest of possibility

only sorrow that I could imagine

my world became

a growing diamond

in your eyes

I conceived of love

I became home

. . . . . . .
