Invocation, Mother’s Day

–for KFL–

Come back to visit us now; come back
now that the gardens are filled, the aspen
sway in the afternoon breeze, the bees
and waterfalls buzz and rush. Come back
in the midnight hush, in the light splash
of the river on its rocks. Come back to us
now that spring is nearly done, summer
almost underway.
                             Under this huge and empty
sky, we must all seem so very small to you who,
released at last, must finally see all things,
all at once, and clearly.
                                    Come back to us.
