My Mother's Eyes (reposted from 09/2012)



                                                              My Mother's Eyes
By
Lisa A.Williams


Blue communion-
of restless sea
and silent sky
an undertow of illness
behind those stormy eyes.

Stone between us
always-
dark catatonia,
kept you hidden,
                                                       
Always I wonder
who you were,
always I wonder
what parts of me
are you?

  4. I understand this....the questioning of the relationship between the self and the mother. I think many of us have these kinds of thoughts...you verbalized them!
