My mother is like the sun because she lights up the dark corners. My mother is like a willow on a riverbank because she comforts and provides shade for her children.’
Jafta describes his mother by comparing her to the earth and nature. He starts his descriptions with sunrise and goes through his daily tasks until bedtime. Jafta’s love for his mother is present in every step of his day.
