On the Day to Celebrate Motherhood


On the Day to Celebrate Motherhood

We celebrate mothers

because motherhood is

about sacrifice,

unconditional love,

A mother’s love happens to be the greatest love of all.

 

No matter who you are

or what your economic status

No matter what creed

or what color or ethnicity

Motherhood is universal.

 

Mothers are revered,

cherished, adored, treasured

and loved beyond life itself.

 

I hope that any mother who has lost a child

or whose child may be ill

to keep faith alive in their hearts.

I could think of two specifically

who lost their children this very week to violence.

 

On the day to celebrate motherhood

I think about my own mother

who is long gone

and about her voice and how it sometimes

infiltrates my thoughts

and still brings me solace

and peace when I most need it.

 

I think about my son lives too far away for me to hug him.

I praise my daughter who is a great mom.

 

I thank God for all the mothers

who set the best example for me to follow.

and that I may emulate them with honor.

 

On the day to celebrate motherhood

we all need to recognize

that mothers are what we have in common.

And we all need to celebrate

their life force

and how powerful a mother can be.

Happy Mother’s Day!!

 

 

A Found Poem – Closing National Poetry Month


 

A Found Poem

 

Flightless wings

know very well

Authenticity

lives in death

The song of May

reminds us

that Mother’s Day

is near

and a Mother’s fear

grows more today

Because

The Promised Land

no longer sows

Bluebells in the sunshine

Beside the old Trail of Hope

Where I used to collect

my dreams one by one

But despite the awful things

That spread on fields of my mind

I am not obedient;

Conformity is not my thing

I Pray.

I pray for kindness.

and want to spread the word.

Life is Good!

Lift your voice and sing!

Tomorrow will be May again:

Flowers scheduled to be in bloom,

let us forget the words of doom.

And for those who predict only gloom,

Just remember,

Tomorrow is another day.

and soon it will be Mother’s Day!

Let us rake the fears away.

 

As I mentioned in the video I created this Found Poem inspired by some of the titles, words and phrases used in the posts of my fellow bloggers at WordPress.
