POST 108: Love of the World, SARA, poem, painting, Beach

by Carol Bass

SOGGY BOTTOM ROAD

First met Sara at church
birthed 10 children
minus heart failure
minus breast cancer
one runaway
down to seven.
Sara, a Holy Mother
shedding light on the road
for us kid mamas
still spreading love
as fierce as an
eagle’s flight
sinewy working arms
gathering our souls
showing this how
this love
love
love
