Motherhood


 She was only gone for a week to help at a kid's summer camp but it felt a lot longer for mother...
Life feels 'right-er' with her here:)


 Oh! The constant bitter-sweet surprises of motherhood...

It wakes heart-    tender splendor
As it aches and breaks and heals and reels with
Breathless grandeur of a love that wounds and heals
It burns with yearning fervor as it earns its seal of scars
As it learns that tears and laughter turn to years 
Scattered like shattered stars; it surrenders vain
  Ambition for the gain of girl or boy
Love lifts a heart-shaped
Cup that over-
 Flows with
Sorrow-
Joy
