Poems of Motherhood

I take my daughter shopping for college
she imagines a life away from me
matches colors to her new body pillow

stripes of purple, white, brown, blue
each as clear, simple and basic
as a mother who loves you

time doesn’t pass, it curves around us
the way you go in widening arcs
the whorl of a conch shell
