Poetry Month: Writer’s Digest PAD challenge, Day 11: a seasonal poem

To myself, as a younger mother

I know you don’t like hearing it.
It galls when in the trenches –
You are tired, worn out
Spent with the giving,
And the giving,
And giving.
But,
They are right,
Time does not stand still,
You will miss the closeness.
Time marches forward, unrelenting
And unsympathetic to your wants or needs.
You may not like to hear this – but it is just a season.

-Krina Ulmer
