Happy Mother's Day, Mom! Love, Steven

Mothers’ Love

A seedling nuzzles
into the soft warm earth
surrounded and protected
until the proper time
for it to send up a tender shoot
and its first green leaves.

Nourished by the soil,
watered by gentle rain,
warmed by the life-giving sun,
the seedling grows
tall and strong
and in its time
will blossom and flower.

You are all those things: 
the earth,
the rain,
the sun.
And while important,
they alone
do but life sustain.
More important still
than Nature’s gifts combined:
the endless fountain
of your mothers’ love.

Happy Mother's Day, Mom!
