Connections: May 8

2015-08 - 13 - Mother dove & chicksThe look

warning most unmeek:

Hell hath no fury

like a mother’s beak!

The look

that deadly laser eye

best maternal weapon

unloosed like banshee’s cry

piercing in its silence

commanding in its aim

it paralyzes enemies

and offspring all the same.

The look

a hybrid arsenal

of terror and of love

a mom has got to be

part raptor and part dove.

To all those women who have flapped and swooped that fine line between raptor and dove, a very happy day!

With more thanks to the S.W.Berg Photo Archives.
