umbilical cord



I gave you that name

I know all your flesh and blood

your thoughts are your own


I am your mother

deny me thrice if you will

I’ll wait here for you

  1. Two of your best.

  2. Like this very much Bodhi .

  4. A mother’s love is the closest to unconditional love!

  5. Heart breaking; I know how hard this must be. Stay strong.

  6. I loved the second haiku. That’s what mothers do, including mine.
