Our Mother, Who Art Beside Us

Header-Ruminate-LogoPoetry for this month’s post– and revisiting the Lord’s Prayer. Our Mother, Who Art Beside Us


Day 40, etc.

Day 25

Hurry! Eat– Hurry!
Dress– Hurry! Brush– Hurry! Shoes–
Morning has broken.

Day 34

Woman plodding through.
Girl-child grasps her hand, every
where skipping she goes.

Day 39

Twelve shut in a room,
some men, none angry. Futures
decided smoke-free.

Day 40

Because I gave her
time. She led me on, taking
care of everything.
