This is an “occasional verse” for Linda Kruschke’s paint-chip prompt this week. An occasional verse is not only written once in a while ( 🙂 ); it is a poem about a specific occasion. Linda challenges us to write about Mother’s Day, which at this point was several days ago, but I still wrote on the same topic. The paint chips are below:
From the dawn of my heartbeat,
She was comforting and guiding,
More than the full moon at midnight:
For the painstaking pyramid of my life,
She was tirelessly a foundation building,
Believing her daughter’s future is bright.
