More Than Blood

It took many mothers

to make this meager man.

Caring, chastising, comforting in turn.

Mothers from many cultures.

Mothers from many continents.

Occidental, Oriental, African.

Mothers all,

transcending biology,

or logic,

or happenstance.

Mothering just because.




Strong gracious flowers

whom I hold in heart and regard.
