Eggs Benedict and a Snippet of a Poem

For me, that's what makes for a perfect Mother's Day -- in my robe, in my kitchen, with a glass of orange juice and Prosecco. And a snippet of a poem --

Happy Mother's Day from me to you.

It's like watching your mother sleep,
minutes after you have been conceived.

and her closed eyes say it's all right
to wake alone...
