A poem for my mother

I am a seed which
From you germinated
And you a place
Where I was sown
Grew and firmly rooted

I am a flower which 
From you sprouted
Grew well in the comfort
Of your cosy arms
Which like sepals
to petals 
In a flower wrapped
Me with tenderness

Your love was
A fertilizer for my growth
Food for my hunger
My warmth in coldness
It was Like water,
Air and sunlight
To a germinating seed

    Bojosi, this is awesome. A wonderful way to pay tribute to your mom and I loved your metaphor. One tiny suggestion. Manure kind of has a negative context. Fertilizer would sound better. Thanks for your comment today. Luv, Andrea

    Such love and respect for your mother..Youth today so much of the time do not have this respect for their parents which is not good...I am glad that you wrote this and I was blessed to get a chance to read it...I was honored to have you stop by and comment on my work..Sara
