Custom Made Mother’s Day Sentiments No. 6

It’s here again

Mother’s Day

that wonderful Sunday

that comes each May

sweet treasures await

a wonderful time

a handprint in plaster

an original rhyme

a ceramic ashtray

although I don’t smoke

breakfast in bed

burnt toast, runny yolk

a card that took 80 minutes to make

with crayons, scissors

a whole roll of tape.

a small flower you planted

yourself just for me

a lopsided sculpture

 I think it’s a tree

a handmade cross,

painted bright green,

a note, “IOU a gift

… love, your teen”

as you grow older

the gifts will transcend

store-bought finery

and flowers you’ll send.

and though every gift

I receive gives me pleasure,

it’s those lopsided gifts

from the heart that I treasure.

  1. I’ve been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours as of late, yet I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is pretty price enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web might be much more helpful than ever before.
