Mothers Day

Some pleasures,
forever timeless,
will remain:
the golden light
of a summer afternoon,
the scent of flowers in a garden
the sound of seagulls
squabbling overhead,
the allure of a path that leads to the sea,
the memory of you
sitting in this chair,
book open in your lap,
turning your face to the light
yet still attentive
to the babies playing at your feet.
