Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
Visiting Your Child’s Chosen College

Inside you, an acceptance

like time-lapse photography

of a meadow blooming.

These fields and winding sidewalks,

these brick and stone buildings

tall with light

will keep her,

will shine upon her.


Your worry

unpeels its wolfskin

and lies down.

Andrea Potos is the author of six poetry collections, most recently An Ink Like Early Twilight, New Girl, and We Lit the Lamps Ourselves.
