Happy Mother's Day from Carol Moore!

Mountian Moments

Laying on the worn gray sidewalk
Broken in half
Teal blue bird's egg
Holding the fragile shell
I glanced upward
pink dogwoods catching the breeze
baby bird somewhere nearby
feathers drying after breaking the shell

Mothers Day dawned overcast
Sun playing tricks
coming out
going back under blue gray clouds

Our children have broken their shells
College educated
Making their own nests
Spreading their wings

A day to remember with fondness mothers who have passed on
A day to reflect upon the joys of life with a mother who can still provide those hugs, kisses, and motherly truisms
Happy Mother's Day.

Carol Ingram Moore
Take time to play, create, and have fun!
