Stepping Beyond Three Words

Posted elsewhere on March 6, 2011 by emanita01


I’m a Mother *
While I no longer follow my name with:
I’m So and So’s mother, and
as time goes on
I’ll respond to the question of
what do you do,
with: “I’m a writer.”
Still I’ll hear those three [little] words:
a mother.

A “found” poem* extracted and edited from an article written by Jo Bryant

Hmm, I fancy I see a tree formed by these verses. Do you?
