My Mother's Day...

I so love my mother...

She not only gave the greatest gift of life,
but she is one of my best friends...

I wrote this poem for her two years ago...

Mom...

This feather…
Bird on your wrist,
reins in hand,
lion on your shield
remembers
connections,
communication,
and the importance of
being
steward of the land…
Oak tree speaks,
listen…
Alchemy of grape
and vine
is but the journey of soul
and this very moment
when all roads meet
and the way
opens
and our hearts
breathe
the freedom of flight,
of golden speech,
of finding our place
in this world
at this time
of passing,
when we step into the
brilliance
of being…

My mom is truly an amazing person,
and I don't just say this because she's my mom!

Just ask anyone who knows her
and they will tell you how she brings such joy
into the lives of those she touches...

She makes me so laugh,
and we go places you would not believe
in our conversations...

So for her and for you...
My wish for you this Mother's Day
is that all your days be filled with bouquets of beauty
like these peonies
from the yard of our dear friend and neighbor,
Alice Waco...
