Spring with Mother

Spring with Mother

~~~

I remember when the March breeze

still held a winter chill

but the sky was a cloudless blue

and the sun warmed the graceful white petals

of the calla lilies

in mother’s garden

 

The garden swing creaked

as she leaned over to button my pink sweater

 “You don’t want to catch a cold little one”

I held her hand in mine

 

She smiled…

 

we loved the calla lilies

dear Julie... Your poem frames a Mother's love...
Our Mothers taught us tenderness and the beauty
of flowers. A garden has the essentials of life...
birdsong is Mother nature's symphony...
trees provide shelter... pine needles a bed.
I love your poetry... soft and sweet. truly... Pat

Calla lilies are one of the most gorgeous flowers ever, but your poem is even more beautiful. Short, simple, yet marvelous!
