Sitting in between them
surrounded by boys
All hovering over her
like the little chicks
all around the mother hen
The echo of their voices
permeate the air
as they all resounds the words,”mommy”
This superpower woman
the knower of the many unexplainable
who bears all unbearable
tantrums, screams, cries and all the in-betweens.
Mother, Momma, Mama, Mom, Iya
from angry retorts, emotional outburst,
a wink, a smile, a healing hug plus the hi-fives
All these and more
make up her superpowers
Yet she wears her robe of a mother with so much
delicateness and joy.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mothers in the world.
