Hi kids! We have a surprise for you today. Given it is Mother's Day, we thought it might be fun to request poems by, to, for, or about mothers: our mothers, our being mothers, our bond with our children, mothers of the world: anything that comes from your heart, as we contemplate the importance of mothers on this special day.
2006 John W. Galbreath
There are so many ways to mother.
We look forward to hearing you
"count the ways".
I suspect there will be some very heartfelt and moving offerings
in the Pantry this week.
I can't wait to hear about all of the mothers, whether we mother through giving birth, adoption, or through simply loving the children the universe sends our way. At my house, they keep on coming, the little ones, small wayfarers from rocky paths, and they fill my life with joy. I always need a kid or two around, otherwise I'd have to rent some!
I hope each of you is having a lovely Mother's Day, from coffee in bed (I know: "On what Planet?" hee hee), to looking at the faces of your children around the breakfast table, to phone calls from far and wide as grownup "kids" check in with their Moms.
Happy Mother's Day!!
And now...here is the procedure: Each Sunday we start a new post with a New Mr. Linky for you. This is so that you can post a link to a poem in your blog. The link will close Monday at 6:00 p.m. (CDT). [We are leaving it up a little longer, this week, to give everyone time to enjoy the goodies]. Even after it closes, you can still visit the links of those who have posted them.

Hey, Sherry, thanks for suggesting a Mother's Day-ish poem. I just happened to have a new one and an old one--though nothing as profound as yours!ReplyDelete
Good idea! I linked my Motherly Angst limerick. Thanks!ReplyDelete

I hadn't thought of anything for Mothers I'm afraid. In the UK Mothers' Day is in March. Hope I'm still okay to link.ReplyDelete
I wish all moms a Happy Mother's Day.ReplyDelete
sometimes every mother does not fulfill her role, this one speaks to the child of that mother.ReplyDelete
Lots of good poetry today! I have caught up with everyone and will be back sometime later today.ReplyDelete

Mother's Day has already been celebrated in the UK back in March, but thank you for giving me the prompt to think and consider my dear mother and maternal grandmother today:)
Happy Mother's Day to all those around the world, for whom today is a celebration.

Our mothers, our treasures, our first love. Happy Mother's Day to all moms.ReplyDelete
The best Mother's Day gift for me is my children and grandchildren...they make all the blood, sweat and tears seem so easy. But of course, being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done.ReplyDelete
Thank you for hosting this! I'm so inspired after reading many entries.ReplyDelete

Your poem on mother's day is so touching. The pain of separation form your son and then the joy of again meeting him is so well described. God bless....
This is lovely..... I had a very nice time reading all the posts....... Some mad me cry, Some reminded me of my Childhood....... Thanks for this lovely feeling..........ReplyDelete
Great idea for a writing prompt! About 10pm last night, I was thinking that I needed to write a Mother's Day poem before the day was out. If only I had checked hear earlier in the day, I would have been inspired by some like-minded Mother's Day aficionados.ReplyDelete
a bit late, as usual.. :)ReplyDelete
Whoops sorry - late to the party .... celebrating Mothers' Day and deciding which poem to post ...
Happy Mothers' Day to all who are, have, have had, or just enjoy receiving a "happy."
I'm too late too, but here's an oldie I suddenly thought of which fits the bill. Hoping some of you may see it. :)ReplyDelete
