current mood: thoughtful
current song: It's All About Soul - Billy Joel

Dipping my toes back in, in a round-about sort of way:) And if the subject of this seems in any way familiar, well... *grin*


Title: Mother's Magic
Rating: G
Verse: RL
Summary: There's nothing quite like coming home, and if home is where the heart is, then Mom is the heart that makes wherever home. What can I say, I've been day-dreaming and homesick...



Mother's Magic


The pleasure of my mother’s greeting is unmistakable, despite the telltale tightness around her dark eyes, concern she cannot quite conceal.

She smiles and a weight lifts from my heart.

“Maman*...”

“Ma fille*,” she sing-songs back, and the babble and din of the busy airport fades.

Though a lengthy drive still awaits, the earthy peace of her garden already surrounds me, smoothing away homesickness and fatigue.

Despite the obvious marks of time’s trailing fingers upon us both, some things could never change – she, timeless earth and sky to my intemperate rain, the compass and port to my ever wandering feet.



*Maman = Mom.
Ma fille = my daughter.
Weird little sing-song greeting thing we've been doing since I was little:)

Thanks! *blush* I do miss her terribly, and it's been a solid two years since I last saw her. Ah, well! The perils of trans-Atlantic relationships... *grin*
