my favourite things/ Mother's Day

it is a glad saying for those who hold the joy
deep in their bosom

for those with sorrow
it stings as an arrow pierced through

my heart aches
but more it is glad

I have these amazing kids
who show up on early mornings
flowers gracing their flight up the stairs
where I pour my love into body food for all
while they bring soul food for me
to encourage
and lighten
my heart

I float

the joy holds me
like a million helium balloons
I rejoice high above my worries
and cares
a song bubbles
from this fullness
and  a precious son smiles
at a silly mama's tears

he knows I loved
his gift

he knows
it was perfect

as it sits out with hummingbirds
already drunk on its nectar
they do a foxtrot between the hanging basket
of this glorious fushcia
and the hanging bottle of their sugary water
the dance goes on all day
and the buzz of joy
lightens our hearts

a papa breakfast
a hike with dad and son
a call from South Africa
on Skype
a call from Alberta
two delightful daughters
mother hearts of their own

love you notes and calls from heart kids
lent to me for this season
also forever loved
in my mama heart
our souls all glad
our spirits soaring

because somewhere
at sometime
we have all had a mom

even if we are not a mom

sometime in our lives
a mom has blessed us

so sorrow can be joy
most days!
this day!
