Mothers stand watching

Children immersed in their play

Park lawn growing green

    That was us yesterday! 🙂

  2. This is an amazingly ‘still’ poem. All the verbs are about concentration and invisible action. Even the children playing, it’s not their activity you are telling us about, but their wholehearted involvement.

      I often see mothers watching their kids on the lawn when I walk through the park. And yes, every time I see them I feel some stillness—like the stillness of a big immovable rock, common to all living things. Maybe it’s the mother’s love that supports the life on earth.
