Mother’s Day

Unlike a mother’s work, does Mother’s Day

have a beginning and an end?  Does it

start at midnight the second Sunday of May?

Or maybe at first light

when young feet and hands

jiggle a tray of toast and tea,

a surprise, to her.

Does it end then?  Or after

the restaurant supper and scheduled

visit?

Once, maybe.  When I was younger

and hadn’t thought

much

of my beginning 

or my end.

But now, now it starts fresh every day. 

Now Mother’s Day has no schedule.

Though, even now, it seems, my

hands and feet still want

to jiggle and splash

the toast with tea.

does yoga start at a certain time? the beginning of class? when awareness kicks in?

or has yoga been there waiting for us?

i’m not sure truthfully…

but, like mother’s day, i believe, it truly has no schedule, no beginning, and no end…

namaste – con dios – god be with you
