Young Mother
by Priscilla Taylor

She has that fragile skin perched
somewhere between peach and alabaster
Dark eyes uncertain
Her shape is formless, soft like
Pillowed rose-petal, or a rose
Petaled pillowing of space.
She questions motherhood.
What is her role now that
another soul demands,
Curled fists shaking.
The threshold between freedom
and depending so recently and
Irrevocably crossed.

Will it be noose, or can she
glimpse the vastness of her
man-made landscape, where
joy and sorrow are sown,
and rolling furrows
folding on furrows unburden
fruits of love.


"The Goddess..." by Carolyn Whitehorn
