this is the painting whole cropped web

this is the painting close web

this is the painting
i shredded
5 years ago
when you weren’t yet 1.

these are the shreds
which have lain
dormant
in a white trash bag
in the garage
all these years.

these are the
words i wrote
moving energy,
the holes i speared,
the tears i tore.

here is the little white owl
who showed up
who wanted to be there
despite me.

here
are the feathers
so very many of them
that you found
picked up
brought home
with your 5 year old hands
collecting
collecting.

and here
my sweets
this one afternoon
on our back patio
is a resurrection
a moment in our shared herstories
captured.

love,
mom.
