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. In 2019, we have an exciting project. We are developing elementary curriculum for Ugandan children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. Along with the curriculum, we hope to develop simple fictions about Uganda for the children to read at school. Trust me books are in short supply. We will use our trusted story tellers: a butterfly and a lion to make the stories come alive. Stay tuned as Bethany and Me put pen to paper. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2012 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the (quiet) originator of the idea and co-producer of One Stop Poetry. 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.

"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" - George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their tabloid news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting - this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell
