THIS IS A POEM ABOUT A FLOWER AND A BURNING CABIN AND YOUR MOTHER 11.8.17

11.8.17

 

 

embrace it
as a flower embraces rain
because it’s rooted to the earth
and cannot move.
cherish it
as a lonely cabin cherishes
burning to ash
when its burning matters nothing
because it has been forgotten already
and so it is dying twice.
embellish it
as your mother embellishes her love for you
so when you ask her why she misses you so
she replies only, Because you are my son.
