My Mother’s China Cup

My Mother’s China Cup

This floral printed china cup
came to my mom
from her mother.
I remember clearly
how she carefully handled them.
and did not let anyone drink out of it.
The way she cautiously wiped the cup every week
and placed it neatly in the cupboard,
is still vivid in my mind.

It's been 20 years since my mother passed away.
The china cup still rests in her cupboard.
Still bright and clean as always.  
I know, every week
my mom travels from beyond this earth
and comes to clean her china cup. 


slammed, China_cup, Mother,
