Standard
comfortable mothersIMG_5752
who sleep and walk
in leggings

content mothers
who stand eating leftovers
for breakfast

natural mothers
who lick their thumbs
to wipe cheeks

relaxed mothers
who welcome guests
to laundry piles

creative mothers
who turn asparagus
into airplanes

adventurous mothers
who climb trees and eat
off floors

happy mothers
who bend and smile
at broken schedules

different mothers
who are only in boxes
with magic markers

intellectual mothers
who learn lessons given
by their children

beautiful mothers
who have insides
both soft and strong
