Mother I Am


silhouette of pregnant woman

Babe in my womb

Knows me, knows Mother

Yet sees not

who I am.

Creation cocooned within

Sees no face, touches no hands,

Yet

Motherless? No

All around IS Mother

allsense allsound allsight alltaste

The walls of existence are Mother

Nourishment gratified is Mother

Steady heartbeats and

Unsteady movement and

Reality itself


Voice of Father

Rumbling through from above,

Far and close,

More clearly distinguished,

since Father is

Separate

(Not as Mother who is

who is not

who is us)


Child wombed in mortality

Knows Her, knows Mother

Yet sees not

Her I AM.

No face, no hand, no Being

Yet

Motherless? No

All around IS Mother

allsense allnourishment allgrowth allLove

We live within

Reality Herself


Yet wombs are not permanent abode

Veils rend

Travail is delivered

And someday,

In blinding light

We will be delivered

Unto Her,

And look upon

A face that, having never seen

We know

For we knew Mother

All along.
