When this woman of generous heft
walked into a room everyone felt enveloped
with a love that poured out of her like a flow
of breastmilk from a neo-natal Mother.
Her family smiled and burped like contented babes
whose bellies were as full of milk as sweet
as a bucket-full of Lychee nuts.
Their encounter vibrates the core of their being
in an aliveness they will never forget.
They simply don’t make Mothers like that anymore.
