Poem: "Like Mother, Like Son"

This poem came out of the December 4, 2012 Poetry Fishbowl.  It was inspired by prompts from rowyn and ellenmillion.  It has been sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette.  This poem belongs to the Torn World project.  It will be submitted to the Canon Board but has not been approved yet.

Like Mother, Like Son

Floqu smiled to see
her son at play --

pretending to cook in minature clay dishes,
sweeping the floor and making beds,
tending a hearthfire made with felt flames,
dressing a little Orsi doll --

and said proudly to the other domestics,
"You just watch: my son will be
a raiser just like me."
