Mother's Day Renku 2008

mothers day
taste of
beauty and elegance /gc

visit to mom
she wears clothes made
from my cloths /jtc

Mother’s Day--
a bouquet of white lilies
beside your tombstone /jd

mothers day--
her favorite blue flowers
placed at the grave /jg

lovely as a rose
Mama's love will never die
fragrant years later /nf

Hail Mary
prayer of salvation
angelic salutation /gc

face of an angel
from earth to heaven she went
each day Mother's day /nf

her smile
when I thought they were sisters --
Mothers Day /tm

Mother understands
Though the knee hurts so very much
Wipes the tears away /qc

my heart was broken
Dr. Mom to the rescue
Krazy-Glue and love /rp

smile would light a room
a love that keeps on giving
Mama's precious love /nf

love caressed her cheek
sunlight danced upon her skin
berry picking time /nf

oh, Mama my dear
pink peony bloomed for you
my first blooms this year /nf

begin in each new mother
these blooms /_m

sweet iris
a part of mother's garden
in mine /b'oki

Mother's day
listening the sound of tape
her Koto Harp /sn

someone else calls her
mum /gc

Those years
you were there, today
with you. /vs

twisted and gnarled
digits write beautifully
mother's eighty-eight /jbc

mother's day
something sexy
for his wife /bill
