"Like Nigella Damascena"
by Sofia Kioroglou



Mothers are special
Mothers are the best
They are like buttons
They hold everything together

Mothers are like flowers
like the Rose of Sharon
like Nigella Damascena
beautiful and graceful

Mothers are like ballerinas
swirling around like in
satin-lined jewelry boxes
doing the splits, even touching their toes

I sometimes wonder how they do this
spreading themselves too thin
somersaulting like dolphins
always charming and buoyant



a line, (a blue one)
