Mother’s Hands (in Gothic)

OK, here is a little more gothic take on my previous warm and fuzzy “Mommy’s Day” delight…

Mother’s Hands

Mother’s hands,

Cold like ice,

Dusty with earth,

Reach graspingly,

To embrace me,
.

Tear-stained,

With skinned knee.
.

A ruby gush,

Warm from the vein,

Brings a smile.
