#OctPoWriMo: Oct 16th-18th

Brick by brick you built your own house with your hands, 
and beyond plaster and wood you built a home.

You once resided  
in the heart of the goddess  
of fruitful abundance. 
A house nestled  
the thinning orchards  
that bore life.

OctPoWriMo: October 9th-12th

Green thumbs and calloused hands turn dirt into a bed of flowers. 
I watch you casually sprinkle life into a seed and watch it grow. 
Mother to children and mother nature you share nothing but love. 
I pray that one day my hands will too learn some of what you know.

And as we all age  
the new life shows signs  
of thinking like you  
when you were that age too. 
You are the life blood.  
The necessary pieces  
that help us put together  
who we are  
and where we come from.

The mother of mothers, 
The head of the family’s state, 
You’re the first to tell 
The last to judge 
And the one who first set our fate.

#OctPoWriMo: Oct 2nd & 3rd

I first learned about God, the Spirit, and his Son through the Church,
But only understood Him and all His ways because of you.
You represent what the beating heart of religion truly is,
And I do my best to live my life taking from your cue.
