My mama’s arms wrap around my little body so fragile i feel i could break. She knows this as her red skin touches me, caressing me from my soft brow to my tiny toes. She knows my tears, she has heard my cries in the night’s darkness.
My mama knows my deepest desires to feel love in my heart, to fill up till there is no more yearning. She laughs a gentle laugh with such tenderness and folds me into her breasts, the softest place in the world, i am filling up with her ever giving love for me and i am safe in her arms, mother redwood. Giant sequoia of the earths embrace.
