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!!!!!
