April 6, 2018: Lucky 7

Mother traces her hand
on the left side of my painting.
She draws a line from her hand
to mine. 

Now, my princess, 
You need to have a guideline
to follow while I'm gone. 

She spoke with such grace. 
I imagined my life
as she had:

Six boyfriends by the time
I was 30. 
Lucky 7
He was to be my husband. 
Our hands fit
in perfect harmony.
