acappella songs #1

POST-NaPo21 MAY CHALLENGE

1. song for my mother

her wings carried
the nine
no feathers plucked
from the plumage
of her vigilance.
seven years more
than ten decades
leave never-fading
diurnal melodies.
her grave hath
no grave songs
the living sing
but happy ones
where the sweat
of her brows
has left
a desolate habitation
in full bloom
