Song to Mothers

Song to Mothers

Your laugh is a green song,
canción verde,
that branches
through our house,
its yellow blooms smelling
like warm honey.
Your laugh peels apples
and stirs their cinnamon bubblings,
then opens a book and pulls me
onto your lap.
At night, your laugh kisses
us soft as a petal, smooths my pillow
and covers me, a soft leafy blanket,
green and yellow.
I snuggle into your laugh,
your canción verde
and dream of growing
into my own green song.

~ Pat Mora

I found this poem the other day in the book Love to Mama: A Tribute to Mothers, edited by Pat Mora. Every time I read it, I smile. :)

Happy Mother's Day to all of my readers!
