Daughters Who Do More   Leave a comment


There are daughters

who are clever, and

win arguments, but never

learn to value what is near;


There are daughters

who are stable, and take care

of business, but are not able

to forgive a sibling who is dear;


There are daughters

who are patient, and

attend to to every instant of  their

child’s every effort to steer clear;


There are daughters

who are passionate, and

take stands against oppression

but cannot see the truth in all their peers;


You, however daughter,

are all these things and then some,

even when you’re acting winsome

you are awesome! Never fear.


As a Mother you are able

to diagnose the trouble, that

a rash and swollen eyelids signal


Salvation from the itching

is what you searched for in the kitchen

when you made home cooked meals for

little ones.

As an artist you concocted

double entendre’s in the journals

given as gifts between mere mortals,

with good cheer.

With a camera and a car

you have journeyed near and far

to be with sun and moon and

shining star.

You have braved the burning desert;

by your own self you have treasured

both the beauty and the solitude;

yours alone.

Your bravery is laudable,

your comedy is laughable,

your costuming commendable;

You triumph here.


As your Mother

I am hoping that with issues,

finally coping, I am able

to live up to what

you need.
