In Mother's Shadow

I've been thinking about Mother's Day, getting cards and gifts ready, and this poem seems just right to share:

In Mother's Shadow
By Janet S. Wong

I walk behind Mother
through the woods
not to touch the poison oak
she points to with her stick...

You can read the rest of the poem, and even hear the poet read it herself, here

– from The Rainbow Hand: Poems about Mothers and Children
