“She is a mother”, painting by BENSACI CHAIMA, Algeria. “Mother replies”, poem by AERONWY THOMAS, UK (copyright of the artist) http://www.artbreak.com/bensacichaima MOTHER REPLIES I do not hate you now for your splenic verse words have no meaning here I use them one more time to temper yours. I never felt for you the hate you express, I thought of you as dross from golden age in a memory I’ve lost, my own life the dregs of a full glass of wine drunk before your time. I must have loved you once, begin, “my darling daughter”. AERONWY THOMAS Like this:Like Loading... Related Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
