Happy Mother’s Day!

Love and pride in the mother’s eyes, complete trust in the infant’s sleep


Away in a Manger

Unmistakable pride

in the smile

on the mother’s face

bonding with her

babe asleep beside her

in utter security

in utter trust

of their caretakers

unknowing of their future fate

at the bloody hand

of man.


Mother and Child

Scan2_edited-3

Proud mother,

smiling unmistakable smile

as little lamb, curled up,

sleeps safely beside her,

for now.

Tomorrow

 both mother and child

will cry anguished tears,

 suffer a searing separation,

as they take little one away,

hopefully out of sight and sound

of mother,

to bring little lamb to slaughter

for a holiday meal.
