March thirteen

A breathe before four decades ago
Joyful bundle was sent to earth
To a southern westerly home
Gracious gentle and genteel

A golden heart full of humane-ness
Thoughtful selfless lovely and motherly
A rare gemstone uncommon
And uniquely pure

I salute you as you clock another
On the ladder of age
All hail the queen mother
Murderer of fear and insecurity

- Poet Isaacola
