Stone 15, Fingers & Toes

tonight
I watch the joy
as my very own daughter
gets a tender pedicure from
her grandmother

my mother's sweet
and crooked fingers
massaging tender, young feet
without calluses

those beautiful feet

those beautiful hands

one
a new canvas that a lifetime will be written on

the other
well used and worn out
but even more beautiful

given in the service of others
always

  1. my mom was here last weekend, it was the most amazing weekend. i cry as i type this, i miss her so much all ready. maybe because our mothers share the same name, but i feel like i could burst from the love i feel for her and what an amazing woman she is, seems you feel the same. xoxox
