Bearded Iris by Lisa Shea

Poetry


Mom

Tammy M. Brown

Abruptly she erupted from the core.

Broken atoms ferociously
exploded into dust
and lingered for long moments,
before imploding back together
with a brutal pummel.

Within those moments
an incompleteness,
a piercing emptiness
so vast was born.

Falling to her knees, head thrown back,
she burst forth a primal keen
from a depth not known to even exist
within oneīs very own being.

This, when your fatherīs face
revealed to her your death.
