sometimes a mother will
fall back in step watching

Enjoyed your take on the prompt, sometimes a mother has to step back and let their children make their own tracks in the journey.

Sweet and sometimes poignant verses. And all interspersed with colourful artwork. Always a pleasure to visit.

Marja said...

Love the collage and that last poem Love how you wrote "a mother will fall back in step watching"

Mothers being mothers will always give way to their children's curiosity in life! They are expected to make mistakes along the way. It is ok as a learning process as long as the mistake is not material!

Here we have a no travel advisory as numbers are a concern, a couple of provinces have lockdowns for high numbers. But we have some stubbornly non compliant people. Stay safe, Gillena.

Your cherita is wonderful. I'm so sorry you are in a third lockdown. That is so discouraging.
