There are mothers.

Mother_child_720There are birth mothers.

And there are stepmothers.

There are adoptive mothers

and there are soul mothers.

 There are real life mothers

and there are heavenly mothers.

There are deceased mothers and mothers alive.

 There are mothers of darkness and mothers of light.

And there are mothers of Heavens and of Earth.

There are mother goddesses and the holy womb.

There are angelic mothers of saints and The mother of God.

 There are always mothers.

Mothers upon mothers upon mothers.

Earthly mothers.

Holy mothers.

I am told they are all in me.

It takes a while to see.

But in a luminous moment, I do.
