Circle of Rest

I am returning to a circle of rest–
The Bird’s nest–
Back to my Faithful Mother,
Sheltered under
Her Wings that protect
And cover.

Note: G-d is neither male nor female, but is depicted as both Mother and Father in the Scriptures. The role of Mother is what I wanted to bring out in this poem. It is inspired by Deut. 22:6, Psalm 91, and Matthew 23:37b
