Poem: Untitled 

I once watched my mother
sing and dance
wildly
on the floor of a misty beach
low tide
smoothed the salty surface—
an expanse for her footsteps flowing

unrestrained.

I once heard my mother
laugh
with her whole heart.
She laughed
with her entire self,
from deep down in.

I have yet to see another smile burst like hers
