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.
