My mother died in my arms, of breast cancer, six years ago. This painting is a tribute to her. It contains this poem: My mother's breath heaves in rumbles out as Life within her struggles to reach Higher Ground free of "body things" they were just breasts after all We tell her again how much we love her, how wonderful she is We hope her Spirit hears what her body cannot We are not ready.
