The World To Hold

Listen to the sound

Of children

Playing

Under the careful

Eye

Of matriarchs,

And the friable

Hold

Of the world suspended

By a thread.

Perhaps there is no

Safer

Sentinel

Than a wise grandmother’s trunk

Lifting

The future

Over her head.

    • 🙂 Thanks, Tina! My niece took this photo in Berlin and I love it! There is so much in it, not the least of it being the child swinging himself on the bar at the bottom of the photo, and all the proportions besides.
      How lovely that you also picked up on the Mother’s Day connotation! 🙂
      YAY.
      Thanks!
