Mother Vessel - sculpture piece

 

Mother Vessel, carrying one’s children

 

Through life until they are

 

Old enough to leave.

 

If they leave too early, it rocks

 

The boat for everyone, and upsets the

 

Whole balance.

 

If they don’t leave when it’s time,

 

Then they overwhelm the boat

 

And again, upset the balance.

 

 

 

Carrying one’s children

 

Into and on through life

 

When they are young.

 

Showing them the beauties

 

And pitfalls in life, from the safety of the Mother Vessel.

 

They can have their little sorties

 

Out into the shallows,

 

With their mother near at hand,

 

But really, it’s better

 

That they don’t leave until they are ready.
