    A mother's gaze as she beholds her child
    Can convey an expansive array
    From soft, gentle emotion
    To hot, angry thought
    Yet
    All are fully fraught
    With love
    Through every part of
    Her mother's mind.

    The awesome power of her glance
    Can bless
    And redress
    Without ever saying a word.

    Sometimes, she stares
    Intently studying her child
    As if awed and beguiled
    By this wonder she's brought forth.
    Wondering if she's done enough
    And what else she can do to bar and buff
    Life's heavy blows away from her beloved creation
    It's a full-time, no-vacation dedication

    Sometimes, she's sadly disappointed
    And with just a LOOK
    The head of her child is liberally annointed
    With all the chagrin she can muster
    Her eyes heralding a mighty and stormy bluster!

    But, whether filled with pride and praise
    Or with anger and displeasure set ablaze
    Still unique yet ubiquitous is
    A mother's omniscient gaze. ​

    Yes, a child can read their mother's eyes like a book, deeply feeling what is going through her mind. Expressed with such warmth and clarity poetess.
