"Layered": A Poem by Esther de Vries

The online literary journal nthposition has just published an interesting poem by Esther de Vries.  Maybe I'm biased, simply because the poet is my wife :-), but I think it is a multi-layered, beautiful poem that reveals the complexity of modern motherhood.  To read the poem click here.

  1. The poem is lovely. I like the complexity of multiple and contrary emotions about "home" and "away." Too often we see such highly romanticized ideas about motherhood, that I think we lose out on the real wonder of it.

    And thank you for helping me to discover nthposition!
