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
