Dear Grandmother of All Grandmothers
Please redirect the poisoned life arrows into
Our own willing Mother’s hearts.
Make of our suffering a child shield.
.
.
Would that we could take the anguish
Of our children into ourselves.
Yet, perhaps it is done.
Mother’s lament of expiation amplified.
.
.
These salty tears the briny deltas
Of our love and flooded dreams,
These wails, our sorrowing mother cries
harmonic dissonance in our cyclonic howl.
.
Cry out the All Mother dirge.
The voiced all pain together
Mother anguish yowl song
The perfect pitch of loss.

    • Lovely. Is this posted on your blog? Is there a link? Is your daughter a mother?

      • This is just my response to your poem.

        No, my daughter is not a mother–Hay crumba! That will take a lot of doing! LOL.

Well my sister’s daughter has a girl. so that my sister’s GREAT grandchildren will be more mitochondrially genetically similar to me than my own grandchildren, My oldest son and his wife will never have children. I did not expect to actually have grandchildren. But these blessings came.

          • My daughter is simply not ready for having children–much less any relationship that might produce them. She’s totally caught up in ‘herself’. My son claims no interest in having children, yet all his friends are married with children. He is neither. Their small children seem to do a good job of ‘chewing’ on his shirts in spite of his ‘yucky yucky’ comments regarding them. I am not holding my breath waiting for either to make a move in the spawning direction.
            As for my biological sibling–well, Mother Nature has seen fit to exercise some population control all her own–and very wisely too in my opinion. Sorry if that sounds awful—but–well, it is a good thing truly that he will not replicate himself in any way, shape or form.
            Mitochondria—ooo what lovely things!

          • Sometimes there is some sense in how Mother Nature works it all out. Not usually, but once in a while.—– Dear Son I and DIL I feel it is more responsible to not bring the children they love into this miserable world. DIL I is a veterinarian. They live with animals. They are God-Parents for several children, but none of their own. That is taken care of, permanently.

          • I agree with the notion of it not being responsible to bring children into the world as it is and seems to be evolving. It did not seem such a negative place when my children were born–but now–now is totally different. Too much is out of balance and well, the tipping point could go either way for just a while longer I suspect.
            From another angle—if we do pick to “be” in certain places at certain times–then–perhaps the tipping may bring the unexpected–that not predicted.
            Consider LIFE at the level of the Mitochondria you first mentioned. What might the DNA soup do when push comes to shove?
            I wonder.
