Inscrutible signs were there all along by fiveplustwo

Inscrutible signs were there all along

10 years ago your world was so small
you climbed the trees and slept under them
that was the first i knew of your forlorn inner journey
to a place I couldn't go

I told you then you were my favorite
as a mother is not supposed to do
my love was frightened
desperate for you to know I would save you

we connected

you started to walk enticing tightropes
strung out across the wide world
I couldn't watch as you ventured
before I knew it you became entangled
in an implacable sapping snarl up

talk to me I said, helplessly
but what use was a mother's love
when the trap was already sprung?
to extricate yourself
you silently gave in

After, I saw you in the branches
I reached but you had gone ahead of me

but we are still connected.

Oh, Kali, tears streaming down my cheeks, watching my own boys and girl play outside by the birch tree. Painfully beautiful visualised!

Oh Kali the words are so emotive
the connection - I understand completely - for me the connection is necessary heartbreaking and comforting all at the same time
