Those mother glances – a poem

Not the disapproving ones you might read about in books or see in films.

Not simply the ones with eyes misty in love.

But the room temperature checkers, the comfort toy locators, the ‘are they about to tumble’ surveyors, the ingredients stock checkers, the time keepers, the weather gaugers, the rear view mirror performers, the bath water height measurers, the rash investigators, the ‘are they sharing’ wonderers, the shoe finders, the bestest yellow crayon searchers, the final check at night peekers, the midnight monitor monitors.

Those mother glances. 

Not the disapproving ones you might read about in books or see in films.

The ones all seeing, with eyes misty in love.
