Praise Song for My Mother
You were
water to me
deep and bold and fathoming
you were
moon's eye t me
pull and grained and mantling
You were
sunrise to me
rise and warm and streaming
You were
the fishes red gill to me
the flame tree's spread to me
the crab's leg/the fried plantain smell
replenishing replenishing
Go to your wide futures, you said
Grace Nichols
