"On the Flowers She Picked"
Tidy nosegays of speckled lilies, pink spring beauties, violets or,
wild geraniums, red and white trillium,
Carefree bunches of white daisies, blue chicory, Queen Anne's lace,
milkweed spilling milky sap and,
long strands of grass gone to seed.
Sturdy bouquets of purple asters, plump cattails and,
yellow ragweed, goldenrod.
In those fair seasons,
for a child carrying
color, fragrance, love,
It's impossible to say
What was the greater joy;
~or the light leaping from her mother's eyes?~
"Happy Mother's Day" to you Mom
and to all Moms everywhere.
ever since My Own's sister
chose the name for the family's first cat:
There has always been a "Simba."
Simba the Fourth,
Coy inside cat
Dark pointed, blue-eyed Siamese,
Shares his homey rustic ranch
With dogs, kitties, horses, geese.
Whiskers as long as walrus tusks
Gentle giant, gentle meez.
