California Notebooks, Dec. 2013




the mothering love

of letting go


silently keeping

a corner


warm the nest

ready to welcome


anytime me

the wounded bird


a small body

still crossing oceans

  1. Thank you so much Anna for sharing your beautiful poem consistent with Universal Truth. Your wirting style perfectly suits the theme of your poem. The motherly love is, in my opinion, one of the most difficult subject to write about because we invest so many emotions into motherhood. Moreover, when we become mothers, we often need to become caregivers to our mothers. I am at this stage of my life now. My mother needs me more, and my son is getting to be more independent. It is a great stage full of joy and sorrow at the same time. Warmest regards – Alina 🙂


    • Thank you for sharing Alina! Enjoy at your best this contrasting time. It’s all a matter of outlook, there’s always a silver lining even to dark times, you know that… just to encourage you to live it to the fullest. Write, write, write about it, always grateful to read you, here or on your blog 🙂
