“Sometime you’ll have to be alone with the baby”
My mother told my sister after her two week stay.
And don’t we all know what this feels like right now?
We’ve been left with our arms full of a new life,
an unbidden motherhood,
mothering a floundering society
with it’s many questions
bewildered and scared.
The mother spirit is suited for impossible tasks
caring for another, for a society,
is an adventure, an investment
and a joy.
