In Honor of Mothers

It is no accident that Mother’s Day is celebrated in the Spring. A time when our Mother Earth is creating, emerging, birthing the beauty of all things.

My daughter has been asking me what I want for Mother’s Day. My reply is the same each time she asks this question. “A mother’s gift is her child.” Being fortunate and having a wonderful life, each day feels like Mother's Day to me.

These humble words below were inspired by my daughter and hero.


Flowers in Spring
Sun flys the air
Fresh blooms
Maypole hair

What be this gift?
From source you say?
Grateful tidings
Love, brilliance, graceful-play

Happy Mother’s Day!
