a wife/mother


a wife/mother
would have had dolls in her youth,
a bedroom of plush and plastic
pretty little things
with names like
hannah and skye

and flower-patterned dresses
that are now curtains and
pillow cases

featured on some blog
about fashion and
vintage things

a warrior and a meadow:

the colours of muted
earth tones to match
the kitchen

where we sit
watching your girls
as they lovingly
rock their dolls
to sleep.
