Daughter
BY JAMES LENFESTEY
A daughter is not a passing cloud, but permanent,
holding earth and sky together with her shadow.

The Daughter

She’s light and also passage, the glory in my cortex.
Daughter, where did you get all that goddess?

Mother’s Day—I like to flip it around— and celebrate being a mom because I have “the best daughter ever.”  I’ve loved the total package, or the whole enchilada of experiences—well, maybe not the rabies scare in Gibraltar!
