Mother

Mother

A Poem by MOON

 

Paradise lies at the feet of thy mother

You were wonderfully rare like no other

All love and humour and oh so wise

Your spirit embraces and never dies

 

The essence your allure

The complexity that was you

You were the sunlit morning dew

The fiery autumn in all its hue

 

I kneel at your feet I hold you

In esteem in the court of the few

I embrace the soul ahead of your time

I am so honoured mother of mine

 

 You were a flower in crimson light

A rare butterfly in flight

You are the moon and the sun

Mischievous and so much of fun

 

I see you in everything

So free and on the wing

Beautiful tribute to your mother. Very poetic lines, rich in imagery, full of love. You must miss her a great deal. She sounds as though she was a free spirit.

I didn't think it would, but it did remind of a Danzig song called "mother".

It's an awesome song, don't feel slighted.

You write well. It flows logically while being pleasant to read. That's not really an easy task if you ask me.
