“A Mother’s Wish”

I would run through

the thirsty halls of your soul

trailing feathers and gold,

to brush and light its wondrous depths.

I would cut open your heart

to release the red pearls of life

to then rush through your veins

in a warm and glorious triumph.

I would fill your hands

with the luscious waters

of ancient and timeless wisdoms,

to transform all you merely think you are.

I would plant rows of tulips in your mind

with no shade of color forgotten.

I would do all these things

if the ‘gods’ allowed,

yet I will them for you every moment

in every one of my heartbeats……
