The Raven's Perch, Spring 2021

Anchoring

Through our eyes, now,

this warm lap of timelessness,

where I have not been

since my first day here,

when you took me in,

beheld me, and drank me,

 

will anchor me

 

now that you go

taking with you

that undying love

that limitless compassion

strength only a mother can muster

bringing forth her child.
