What Mothers Are Made Of
by Joshua Hazel Delphine

The blossom of a sunflower, bright as a smile
That's what mothers are made of.

The bonsai tree, still with dignity and posture
That's what mothers are made of.

The heart of a million white-winged angels
That's what mothers are made of.

The awareness and protectiveness of a moon-eyed wolf
That's what mothers are made of.

A face more beautiful than a symphony 
That's what mothers are made of.

Their voice is like a river, 
running over the smooth stones that massage its body,
while sunbeams bounce off of its cool surface.

Their love is unbound by physical laws and obstacles. 
Their words are a book of life's lessons.

Their knowledge is like an ocean with an endless horizon
which is never reached or contacted-  but absorbed.

That is what My Mother is made of.
