Mommy's Earrings

Recent Entries · Archive · Friends · Profile

* * *
My mother had earrings of gold and silver
that dangled gracefully from her ears
and kissed her neck when she turned her head.

But on bad days,
when she needed extra strength,
she wore teardrops of wood
with cotton plants painted on them
which hung from french hooks.

She said they kept her grounded,
reminding her that things don't have to be complicated.
That sometimes it's the simple things
that keep us going.

Now I have earrings of gold and silver
that dangle gracefully from my ears
and kiss my neck when I turn my head.

But on bad days,
when I need extra strength,
I wear teardrops of wood
with cotton plants painted on them
which hang from french hooks.
