The Mothering Blackness


She came home running

back to the mothering blackness

deep in the smothering blackness

white tears icicle gold plains of her face

She came home running

She came down creeping

here to the black arms waiting

now to the warm heart waiting

rime of alien dreams befrosts her rich brown face

She came down creeping

She came home blameless

black yet as Hagar’s daughter

tall as was Sheba’s daughter

threats of northern winds die on the desert’s face

She came home blameless

Celebrate Mothers Day on The Nightside with Andy O’

as we play songs and poems that your Mother should know.

Without Mom we’d just be a concept not conceived…

Mothers Day evening at 9 pm on The Oasis in the City
