It’s a #gift that can not be
wrapped in ribbons and bows
It’s the #gift of the love
All Mothers should know

(108 characters incl. spaces)



Fresh from flesh, bud from blood
First gasp the sound of motherhood
A gaze of love lit on her face
To last her all her days

scold Lucy for chasing something
around the dark backyard,
rush her inside. A scared mother
has scented a warning.

Mother-in-law & wife as well
seem to have the jaws of hell
pub ward now I quickly wing
Silence is a treasured thing
