Stomping of his feet

Made me aware

Of his erratic moods

Sweeping his mind.

I was no angel,

No tarot card reader

No astrologer

To read his mind.

I, was his mother

Who very well


The mood-swings of her child


The footsteps that followed

Warned me

What was in queue?


I was ready with my tools

To handle

My growing kids…

    A mother doesn’t need astrology or tarot cards for deciphering her son’s moods. Nice.
