On the ninth of each month we have been called to hold space in our communities on life, death and transformation by ObservetheNinth.org. Today’s vigil will help us grieve the deaths of our own mothers on this Mother’s Day. May it bring you peace and comfort.
“MOTHER” by NIKITA GILL The water of her womb, your first home. The body she pulled apart to welcome you to the world. The spirit in you she helped grow with all she knew. The heart that she gave you when yours fell apart. You are her soft miracle. So she gave you her eyes to see the best in the worst. You carry your mother in your eyes. Make her proud of all she watches you do.
