Homage to Mum

Memories of mother
Wrestling with the elements
In torrid heat or in biting frost
She was unyielding and defiant

A daily battle for our survival
Working her way in silence
From dawn to dusk
In devotion, not in submission

A cuddle here, a stroke there
Joyous we were like twittering birds
Home felt warm and tasted sweet
Despite all the hardships

Her family was her world
It started and ended there
Mother was adamant
That was sacred.
