What A Mother Dreams


Today has been a day of Be-Dazzlement, where heroes have emerged before my eyes and wooed n’ WoWed me ceaselessly. As I watched our boys and heard their gentle banter, I was struck with a timeless gratitude perhaps reserved for mothers, perhaps a part of everyone who has ever loved to the point of ache.
This is the dance and delight I saw and the reverence and wisdom revealed.
May it meet you where you are as you embrace the hero within those who dazzle you with their innate magnificence, simple, profound, apparent and sometimes begging for us to seek and see.

This is the poem as captured in the photograph of the Boys in Action above.

What A Mother Dreams

Your twinkle,
Your hum,
Recounting the snoring.
Poor man,
With a bump on his head
Unable to wake
Again and again
In the morning.
Skipping stones,
Bouncing free,
Teetering on the tops,
Through gurgling creek.
Brothers at hand,
God in your heart
And in the creation
You meld with
Dance with
Delight in,
Without ever knowing
How you captivate my heart
And ignite my desire
To be the mother
All mothers
In Love.
