how does it feel

i sat in the back
as in cultural hall
surrounded by people from Nepal
sounds. smells. clothing. faces.

all new

there you were
on the stand
facing forward 

the look of being present
all over you

called. sustained. set apart.
to love
and serve
and work

my boy
forever my boy
this mother heart knows joy

Y.E.S. Couldn't agree more with the poem. Like that the end surprised me. First time on your blog over from Just a Moment.
