Mother's Day Thoughts...


Greetings, Readers!
Like many of you, this weekend's actvities will be devoted to honoring and celebrating Mother's Day.
Where would any of us be without them?

They are our first teachers, our biggest cheerleaders. They give us roots and wings.
Accordingly, here are a few poems I have written for moms.


A SPECIAL THANK U...
 
Mom,
Thank you
For the gift of life,
 
But more importantly,
For giving my life meaning.
 
 
COLOR HER MOTHER

A
scapegoat
A safety net,
A cheerleader
A molder
A knee-kisser
A hand-holder,
 
The author of childhood tales
With many happy endings

 
Roots,
Wings,
And countless lovely things
Sometimes spent
Heaven sent
 
Like no other,

Yours,
Mine,
Mothers
 
(c) Jennifer Brown Banks
 
 
May your Mother's Day be filled with good food, good moods, and memories to cherish for many years.

  3. Your poem certainly encompasses all that mothers do. The labels fit. Roots-wings...so true.
