MOTHER (for DVerse Poets’ Pub)

They wove violets and daisies on my hair
saying, “You are quite  beautiful and fair”
what sweet words for the one who cleans their mess
servant and queen, the life of  a mother.

Wild Flowers
These are the flowers that inspired the poem. While I was gardening, my sons gave me the flowers they picked from the yard. Some ended in my hands, others on my hair. They told me not to remove the flowers. Later, I took a picture to remember the sweetness of my children.

I am writing for Bjorn’s DVERSE’ promot – Rub’ai and Rubayiat.  It’s been awhile since I participated in the Pub prompts.   School has begun for us and now, I am teaching three children.  In between, I still can tomatoes.  The harvest has been quite plentiful this season that, so far, I have about 38 quarts of canned tomatoes, excluding the canned  sauce and salsa I have made.  I have been having a lot of productive time but it has been a little tiring, too.

Anyway, before this dissolves into a whine session, let me just wish you a Happy Friday and I’ll see your posts one way or the other. 🙂
