Figures do not lie
So true, though also is this
Liars can figure

Words of A Sweet and Sour Mom

Real Title: Words of a Sweet and Sour "Mom"
(the title heading won't take quotation  marks
and other special characters, a thing I find most 
irritating because a title can really lose its effect
without these things!)

“You MUST call me Mom” not such a bad thing to ask - unless demanded “You’ve been a good wife” this remark came with a cruise - best gift of my life My husband and kids - all are in her will but me. . . . “Andrea’s not blood"

I had a dirty wet diaper
sores, and backed up against
her and called her mom.)

Once Mother...Now Beast


                                                     Provocation leads
                                                     fury of four elements 
                                                     Foretold time has come

Best Mother in Law

she lived far away 
the phone to communicate
first question asked

always check weather
then how are you doing now
a happy response

want her back again
two weeks for pleasure visit
wished for us again

mother did not mind

mother did not mind
a kind beauty of passion
and then there was me

singer of night songs
tone deaf to all but to me
the randy cat howls

mated wife, mother
baker of red cherry pies
one in the oven

Lovelier Than A Rose

Oh lovely rose song
Pressed in that book for so long
Music can't be wrong

Memories that stay
always recurring array
Learning how to pray

Thoughts engraved so deep
Everlasting pure, keep
Reminding of love

Oh that lovely rose
Pressed in that book that was closed
She lovingly chose

Memories that say
True love won't take her away
Momma I miss you

My Spiritual Mom

Mom’s Bible stories 
my first words inspired to be. . . . 
that Jesus loves me

her best-loved motto -
what’s next to godliness. . . . 
eight kids cleaning up

feasting on Scriptures
strong in mind, body and soul. . . . 
Mom might outlive us

Lilac Memories

      On my windowsill

   her pitcher filled with lilacs...

      My heart remembers

                                          Memories are stirred...

                                     I sat on her bedspread, while

                                        she brushed my long hair

            Sweet fragrance of love

      comes in shades of purple blooms....

            quilted by her hand.....

Mother Earth

                            To one day leave Mother Earth...

                                      Before he kills her.

Amazing Mothers

"Senryu for Mom" Contest
Sponsored by Francine Roberts

Amazing Mothers,
give it all beyond themselves
pure love lives in hearts

A day never ends....
flows into nights- for always
love never ending 

In times of danger,
self preservation's thrown out
her children come first

 My shy adolescence
