I love you Mom




Mom is still with me

   her body and soul are here

       sadly her eyes stare

           she has outlived destiny

                only memories remain...

MOM

MOM

christmas morn – she’s up
prestodigitating appetite
only one soul before
the largest package under the tree
shredded carelessly

Warm Shoulder To Cry On

Tender and soft touch
of her comforting two hands,
caresses her back,
reassuring her of love,
love!between mother and child.

I remember mine,
Her sweet pleasant voice echoes...
'son!you can do it',
As I cry  over tough tasks,
her warm hugs very soothing.

Extreme deja vu ,
as I cry on her shoulder,
Her voice and warm hug
make my sorrow disappeared,
Wife and mum,bosoms of warmth.

Happy Birthday to me
I'll make a great memory
make Mom and Dad proud
with a bright flash they will see
just how much they mean to me.....

Forgiveness

forgiven
mother keeping that letter
from my first love 
until I was fifty
and happily married

Tanka This, that, those and them

 cat, dog, food, humor, mom, pain, summer,

I  bit my tongue
Chewing a wad of bubble gum
I poked my eye ball
I took my stake off the fire pit
Eye ball was blinded by smoke fumes!

I tripped over  feet
My shoe laces both came undone
Slid in my 'spilt' milk
Cut my finger on broke glass
Blood now was mixed in milk!

I sat on a chair
It was much too low for me 
Table top held my chin
Knees folded I knelt down  below
My neck got cramped looking up!


Taking a 'soap' soak  
I washed my hair in 'suds' water
Forgot to rinse 'wash'
Let the bath drain of cold water
Had to take a shower too!


I bit my finger 
A huge delicious apple
Choked on pieces bitten
And swallowed a broken tooth
Made a dentist call!


Pits are wicked  on teeth
Cherry pits the worse for wear
Three cherries at once
Eaten you will choke on a pit
If swallowed you will die!

Pepper makes a sneeze
Then coughing  up of chewed food
Follows up the throat 
Adds 'more' to the plate
Appetite all lost!

Close your eyes and wish
Once upon a time like 'right' now
My mom told me so
Magic will make a wish come true
Then I learnt she fibs white lies!

Cats and dogs skip rope 
Jumping around up and down
When the double-dutch stops
Cat and dog hair flies about
 Then the fight is done double time!

Touring on my bike
I flipped ' head over heels' and rolled
 Down grassy culverts  below
Upon a stinking skunk hole 
Skunk was home alright!

Belly laugh causes much gas 
That builds wind into a toot
Wind passing  more pain
Reaching a higher stink bomb
That calls  more laughter!

My peaches are very ripe
 I squeezed one to check them out
Grab'n napkins and bowl
When bitten into juices pour
 Sliding stickily  down my chin!


Corn on the cob needs
Melted butter and wood toothpicks 
 Small bits catch in teeth
Cob takes two hands for chomping
All the kernels in a row!

Shaved cabbage ' coleslaw'
Sliced hamburger buns with meat
Chopped onions with sauces
Causes gall bladder  heartburn pain
 Trapped gasses tells' piglet' enough!
