*a Heavenly Cocoon On Earth (Dedicated To My Mother) Poem by Sameer Ahmed

*a Heavenly Cocoon On Earth (Dedicated To My Mother)

Rating: 4.1

Shielding me
From vulnerability outside
By ethereal cloche
She enshrouds me
In her protective envelop
Like a cocoon
Wrapping a larva
Through metamorphosis
She assembles comforts
Cultivates happiness
And weaves dreams
For me
Beyond her life.

Perfect words to the poet's mother, and to all the Mothers of this world who have made it possible for you and me to say it is possible. Great moment of introspection!

For the love of your mother such a beautiful poem. To me it expresses the very essence of a mother, to love, protect and dream of a better future for her child.

this is very well written, good imagery, well-constructed. These are my favorite lines: 'And weaves dreams For me Beyond her life.' They have resonance beyond the words, deeper, very beautifully put. When you have an ending that strong, it lifts the whole poem to another level.
