 Passage of Her Song

Brush
~ gentle brush
To leave spun-silk of wiry curls,
braided ribbons and
other fancy things,
hands wove round
a countenance ~ my own
reflected in the glass.
Her own ~ silver now flecked,
porcelain handle etched mosaic
as the delicate fissures of her face and mine

In the shine
I see her soft and rhythmic stroke
perpetuum
a movement . . . I to she
whose composition blends and binds to me

Mother,
in my veins
you wrote a rhyme,
verses penned
in the rush of generations
~ rush of milk
and dew of tarrying kisses,
My lyrics sung
on the notes of toil and pride
pinched from time
and tears, honeyed and bittered

A hush
~ hush
To memorize our modulation
as we sing this final round of two,
this melody entered each on separate measure,

to end upon
my single note,
sustained
and unwavering
