Eomma

Have a good day at work

I will pray for your safe return.

Eomma

What’s for dinner tonight?

Is it my favorite dish?

.

She leaves the house

like anyother day

only to find

her soul

drifting to the great beyond

with no reason

for the depature.

.

Eomma

Come home safe.

.

I forgot to tell you

I love you


In the US, we have experienced yet another tragedy of a senseless shooting. There were 8 courageous and incredible women who left the earth on Tuesday. As I process these deaths, I wonder about my own impertinence. How things change in a blink of an eye. Eomma is the English spelling of the Korean word for “mother”. I wanted to pay proper tribute to these women and reflect on the families left behind. Photo by Jez Timms on Unsplash
