daughter of mine

Woman and child pause
to rest on a flat, seat-like rock
that peers out to sea
A small and delicate waist
cupped by the large and pendulous arm,
a well-rehearsed coming together,
as if separation
was only ever
a painful illusion.

Separation – Small stone Jan 19

Painted woman, red on black
Twisted limbs and shifting hues
Barebreasted mother and babes,
it is hard to discern
where she ends, and they begin.
