About the Author: Kasia

My name is Kasia Scontsas. I grew near Lublin, Poland and moved to Warsaw to study International Business. I have passion for languages: any languages! Currently I live in New Hampshire. I enjoy skiing, kayaking, biking and paddle boarding. My husband speaks a little Polish, but our daughters are fluent in it! I wanted to make sure that they can communicate with their Polish relatives in our native language. Teaching them Polish since they were born was the best thing I could have given them! I have been writing about learning Polish language and culture for Transparent Language’s Polish Blog since 2010.

    Mother’s Day Poem

    I remember my mother, her old house,
    the miracle of her love, her fingers
    on my cheek brushing away the night,
    the world coming home for breakfast,
    her eyes asking if I’d been on the road
    for long and was the traffic heavy.

    Nothing speaks of love like her kindness,
    not the birds swirling in the mountains
    nor starlight in the trees. Nothing speaks
    of hope like her silent prayers for me
    in the morning before school or the bread
    and soup she placed before me at night.

    Some people seek comfort in a priest,
    the way he washes his hands in holy water,
    raises his chin to drink the wine. But it’s mothers
    who divide the loaves and fishes, collect
    the crumbs, sweep the floor, and find lost coins.
    One day they’ll call us home for the last supper.
