The Mother and the Night

By Camincha 

The mother who calls for
her daughter in the
dead of night
will do well to let
her be: bless her to
           release her to
           her own destiny.
You can’t gather the
ocean in the
cup of your hands.
A dove has to fly away
if it’s ever to
return to you.

Camincha is a pen name for a California-based writer.
