Mum's the Word.

I've never been a mother In the societally accepted manner. And yet,  I've born lots of things, borne others, Taking in seed, growing, passing it out and unto Acting as surrogate when others faltered Cooperatively shaping smooth new marble into model citizens Nuzzled even animals through their whole life cycle
Earth goddess written on even my deceptive flesh Too abundant and myriad, ugly, nurturing, not sleek, yet providing Sustenance of hungry souls.
