Mother

And God saw it all and it was good He saw the man, and the beasts The silent stream, weaving and waving through the woods. Serene, Blissful, Breath Giving spectacle. It was good but God lingered Ah-ah! an Idea through the dark like a halberd in battle. Woman was created, such a beauty, the much needed flint for the “spark of life” and while it lasted it was good. Hey!!! The storks have arrived and the peak of evolution attained. MOTHER was crafted, forged in the fires of perseverance, chisels of LOVE etched on her the ancient runes of endurance. yes the masterpiece is done, And God looked again and saw perfection. Serene, Blissful, Breath giving, Perfect spectacle. Our ungrateful asses holler, "WE LOVE YOU!" not enough to cover all quiet ones we skipped though. The dog hid his Mother in heaven, today he is Man's best friend, companion even. such is it for those who cherish Mother. take a full minute, speak no word, take a trip to the past I'll be back in a minute. >............................................................< Yeah, that's for all the prone ones. deep breaths and sighs a silent teardrop, able testament of your life and love.

I understand the person who treats his or her parents well, particularly the mother succeeds On other hand they one who's awful to his mother will perish. Is that your interpretation of that folklore.

No not a proverb, there was a famine and all animals resorted to eating each one's mom together everyday till it was over, when it got to the dog's turn he hid his mum (just paraphrasing here) and things actually turned out well for him for that and he ended up saving the whole kingdom, if you are Yoruba you should know the story.

Thanks for sharing this. Welcome to Poetry Soup. I welcome you with the love of the Lord, expressed by John 3:16 of the Bible, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." God bless you.
