Mother

 

woman
bulwark
earth

an intelligent design
humble as a great saint
as steadfast
………………. (though no
saint —saintly at times
in most instances that require
burying an impulse to ego
under cover of wisdom)

strength enough to forego
she rises on an updraft of generosity
to give the thing needed
to a child of herself and one other
but which she alone carried,
labored with, bears,
and bore

said more succinctly,
love
