Portrait of the Mother as a Pitcher

Today I will offer up daffodils.
I will put all thought of milk aside.
Today I am not a container
for warmth and nourishment.
This may be the start
of what happens next: the spring
of green stems from my belly
and my reaching hands
like those of a gold goddess,
open and many.
