My Mother’s Roots

My Mother’s Roots can be found in her boots.

I remember her Black and Brown boots before the change.

Her shirts were always tucked into her skin tight jeans held in place by numerous belt colors.

I imagined her Black boots allowed her to navigate between worlds, the distant past, or the anticipated future.

My mother controlled depression and anxiety until she was consumed by the present.

Her Brown boots were more subtle and playful.

She was grounded into the Earth, feeling deeply in a multidimensional space.
