growth shared: mothers and more
i thought i'd use these two monoprints (the empty silhouette filled by nature) made last year
to coax out some thoughts about nurturing and growth and friendship:
mother's day can do that,
ring memories up in me
of mom helping me along,
wanting for me what she couldn't have had.
mother made me dresses like these early on, when she could.
gave me the outdoors to dream away my cares...
a clothesline duty to feel the breezes
blow faraway places into my head,
inner thoughts out.
faraway places, sometimes exciting,
often empty~ but never for long.
spirited friends have helped heal my heart
and let breezes, and dreams, ruffle me around again.
