On Mothers – For Mother’s Day

I am from my mothersmall seed of life painting by Judith Shaw
from the swirling stars of the cosmos
through the long passage,
contacting and expanding
birthed of her body
nourished by her love.

I am mother.
You came to me
through blood and bones
to be suckled by me
and then slowly set free.

artio, Celtic Goddess with stars, painting by Judith ShawI am the Mama bear, ready to attack when you are threatened,
your pain harder to bear than my own.
I explode into a thousand stars when your star rises.
Your life always more precious than my own.

Mother Goddess your names are many – Isis, Rhea, Cybele, Danu……..My Heart Opens, painting by Judith Shaw
Your love flowers in our hearts.
Your strength gives us the courage
to birth, to grow, to die.
