THE BRIGHTEST STAR – AugustMoon Day 11


AugustMoon Day 11 photo prompt

You have always been the brightest star in my sky from the moment I began as a speck in your womb. You have nourished and nurtured me with your body until my birth.

We were one.  Then we became two. You forgot that sometimes but that’s okay. It’s the being human and the mother in you.  It’s hard to let go and watch me stumble, fall and bruise myself.  It’s part of learning for both of us.  It hurts for only a little while.  I can get up and dust myself off.

Though I can feel you in my bones, in the marrow of my body, we are separate beings. Sometimes I forget and feel I have to protect you from hurts. That’s being human and the daughter in me.  I forgot you knew how to get up and dust yourself off long before I could.  It’s allowed – this being human and caring for each other.  We are doing the best we can.

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.
