A dedication to mothers on Mother's Day

Salt of the earth

Women are salt
Of the earth
Giving it a taste
So sweet and sharp
It burns the tongue.
Molded in crystals
Of molten metal
They glow with glitz
When touched by the sun
Glinting like liquid gold.
What can the world
Be without women
To move its wheel
With their valor and softness
Braving the odds to mold it…
Indeed women are not only salt
But sugar in the broth
Of the earth.

 Mary Jade Monroe

Happy Mother's Day
