Sunday Things: Happy Mother’s Day 2012!


We all dream of flight…”


This photo, of me, my mom and my daughter, is the endpaper for my chapbook, The Consequence of Wings (On Angels and Monsters and Other Winged Things)”, published by FootHills Publishing.

Mother
(Mother’s Day 2012)
By Annette Marie Hyder

I watched you preen your wings in the sun
and dreamed of feathers of my own.
We have touched different parts of the sky
but it’s thanks to you that I have flown.

My fledgeling’s fletches are dazzlingly bright
seem hybrid especially for height
and visible in their elegant line
is your iridescent shimmer; unmistakeable
shine.
