Mother – a Poem

mother-103311_1280

By Katharine Griffiths

Healing hands, harming fists
Comforting embrace, crossed arms
Soulful gaze, empty look
Validating ear, deafening silence
Understanding heart, selfish attitude
Heartfelt words, stinging criticism
In death sorely missed, free to find bliss

  1. Unusual approach, the overall effect for me is for a parental framework that was strong on the boundaries but still left a secure, respectful space for growth in the middle? Nice beat and wide coverage for few words.
