Two mothers

You were like
Two mothers
Protecting me
Your breast plates of love
Like branding irons
I was
Covered over
By a nightingale in ivy
You hid me like a baby
The Egyptian lord of death
Were an army
Against the night
You were
Like two
Protective mothers
You held out your hands into the darkness
Into the dream-river-stream
You could separate
Life from death
You had the strength
Of an angel
There was healing power
There was sleep

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
