Life's Progression

gazing at long cornrows
mother envisions
elaborate designs

          tiny beads
          show colors of the rainbow

rain pouring down
trudging through muddy fields
in tall rows of corn

          swatting mosquitoes
          tired weary hands

showing signs of aging
she massages the tender knots
reflecting on years gone by

          the rocker creaks softly
          darkness slowly sets in
