Fleurs for Mother’s Day #poetry #mom #mothersday


Her smile gives me cause to grin

I’d pick a handful of every fragrance

put them in a vase

make the perfect card

she’d remember my silly face

with cake batter hands

making her a mother’s day surprise

catching laughter in her eyes

swallowing up mother’s day memories again

***

I couldn’t ruin flowers in a vase but I certainly ruined many a mother’s day cake.

What memories do you hold of Mother’s Day with your mother or as a mother?

Wishing all mothers and the Poetry Pantry Folks

Happy Mother’s Day!!!!!

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. Many good memories of Mother’s Day with my mom, but then again, there was the one I ruined when I had to go to the hospital. = )

  2. Your poem made me remember the Mother’s Days celebrated when my mother was alive….I think even though I am a mother myself now, I still remember those long ago days when I made my mother homemade cards.

  3. Moonie, that was a sweet, short, and simple poem for your mom. I enjoyed every line like seedless grapes from the local supermarket. Happy belated Mother’s day and thank you for stopping by and following me on twitter. I want to know what your thoughts are on some of my poetry on my blog @: http://www.jamztoma.blogspot.com. The current theme is: spiritual, confessional, inspirational, and musical. Have a lovely day!!!

  4. Loved this moving poem. My Mom died at 67 and I still miss her. Well written.
    Also much thanks for your comment of my poem The Keyhole. As you may have guessed it is about my Mother. Glad you liked it.
