otter mom

no hands

raising her pup

primarily in the water

how to protect him

from drowning

while she leaves him

to gather food?

gentle, warm puffs of air

against his body

raises and separates

his fur, captures air

bubbles make him buoyant

ah, the magic

of a mother’s ingenuity

and love

as a retired physician, i have needed to talk with many persons about end of life. And then I cared for my husband for more than five years.
