grieving mother

the multitude of smiles

the woman
who decides
to bear
no children

bears love
to all humanity

mother’s day gossip

May 13, 2007

Poor Joan –
she never married.

And Leslie
never had children.

And wasn’t it a shame
about Marla?

Too bad –
she was such a pretty girl…

A Mom Like You

May 13, 2006

The world needs
more moms
like you.

A mother to speak softly
about how special
a child is.

A mom to look up to
and feel sure about.

I wish I could send you
to those
who need a mom
like you;
to embrace them
in fragrant warmth
while you sing away
the loneliness.
