I Became a Mother

Kaia 2005

Indigo 2007

Baby #3 2010

I became a Mother

Not in one singular

Moment

But in a million of them

So really

I become a Mother

Every day

With every solitary

Breath

——–

I became a Mother

So that my heart

Could know

No boundary

Expanding

At the same rate

As my children’s

Wisdom and

Consciousness

——–

I became a Mother

So that the

Clearest

Of mirrors could

Be held

In front of my

Seeking eyes

And guide me

Even deeper

——–

I became a Mother

So that I could

Grow

Into my own heart

And know

Intimately

The sorrows

And bliss of this

Life

——–

I became a Mother

So that these bones

Could shift

And this blood

Could flow

Freely

And this skin

Could stretch

Wholly

——–

I became a Mother

So that I could

Remember

Like a child

That uncharted

Territory

Can be navigated

By Intuition

Alone

——–

I became a Mother

So that I could

Stare

Into my lover’s eyes

And say

“See? This is

What our

Love is

Capable of!”

——–

I became a Mother

To unlearn

What took me years

To believe

I already knew

To challenge

The words

And trust the

Stars

——–

I became a Mother

For this very

Brilliant

Inhalation

Where small

Fingers

Cup my cheek

And love springs

Effortlessly

——–

las 5.9.10

for my girls, my light and shadow

for my baby, magic moon energy within my womb

for my man, joint creator of all i love

for my mama, the thread the weaves through us
