God’s Middleman is a Woman
(a poem for Mother’s Day)

Seems even God needs an
agent…of sorts
There’s no heavenly factory for
this production

The Creator of All is
absent a shipping
Life comes our way through
a middleman who
is a woman

God uses flesh to make
She is a tender yet
tough disperser
of something
we call birth

God’s grand design needs
loving help
to give life its start
So in the midst
of struggle and pain
there comes a miracle-
a new breath
a child

All because of God’s middleman
and we call her

Mother’s Day 2019
