Dear Mama



I remember an image

Ducklings, making a streamline

In perfect sync, behind

Their calm and alert, mother duck


A hen, who depicts grace above water

While swimming furiously

A hen, who plucks her own feathers

To cover her nest of eggs,


I remember an image

A mother alone, time travelling with ease

Providing, playing, loving

Doing so, while smiling like she’s having

The best time of all


Deserving Mothers of the world

We appreciate you, thank you!
