  • (or drowning ankle deep)

    Mother, you have left me behind to fend for myself
    like tiger cubs or seal pups
    your teaching nurture is done
    & you have moved on

    Mother, I stumble but embrace your example
    deep in my skin I inhale the scent
    just as you showed me

    In the moonlight stealth you are my shadow
    striding in unison with all that I am
