Another Mother

By: Indie Skreet

Page 1, Self-explanatory

 

No desire for her to call

Or show belated care

Or to proclaim she’d been a fool

For never being there

 

Yet, I too bore the precious shoots

That grew from passion lit

And felt maternal love acute

That no time could omit

 

Unpalatable questions

Arose from all I had

Inadequate suggestions

Impaired my view a tad

 

Aware of need to nurture

My own elective offspring

However hard I searched her

All I saw in her was nothing

                                    

Though years of snow did linger

The imprint would remain

And clean rain failed to hinder

That wretched muddy stain

 

Recurrently dreamt mother

Would one day pen a line

Plead sorrow for the other

Who wasn’t really mine
