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


lilacs
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


everyday
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
