A Tribute To Mother’s

She dressed her little girls in frills

cleaned up her boy’s skinned knees

told stories at bedtime

tucked them in

“Sleep Tight”


Nights and Weekend Ball Games

toting all that stuff

weekly voice, piano

backstage her Drama Queen

up front


Driving Driving Driving

remember the brakes

eye on the mirror

can’t afford



Loving them- always

missing them- each day

“call when you can dear

can’t stand when you’re away”


We love our moms – our mothers

how could we do without

those little touches

that’s what mothers are

all about


Thanks to playing with brushes  for the sweet picture

and Jingle for the sweet bouquet/ award

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing and publishing in multiple genres (including education) in E. African for E. Africa. As a writer, it is a thrill to write for children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 13 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - my joy is in meeting you!

  1. Every Mother who reads this will tear up and its all cos of how you’ve expressed the act of Motherhood in such a simple and loving nature. Although the process of Motherhood can be stressful, you manage to overlook those part and painted a picture of perfection. This poem also shows the optimism in you.


  2. what a wonderful picture and such a sweet poem.

    Happy Mother’s Day,my friend!
    You look BEAUTIFUL, then and NOW!
    You are such a wonderful friend and MOTHER!
    May this Mother’s Day be one of the best with more to come in years!


  3. Thanks for celebrating moms. The imagery here doesn’t remind me of my mom. It does, however, remind me of the mothering I did…still do. Although my sons are grown I still play an active role as mother. The job has cost me dearly in terms of my professional career, emotionally and physically (I had two difficult pregnancies with long-term consequences). There has been no monetary reward for the labor, but I don’t have a moment’s hesitation when I say the effort was/is worth the costs. Whenever my sons call home, like today, I am amply rewarded for all the dirty clothes I’ve washed, all the hours spent in the car, all the piano practices that demanded cotton in my ears but I said “no”, etc. Motherhood is a remarkable gift. Everyone should try to remember that 365 days a year not just on a single Hallmark day. Happy Mother’s Day to mothers, sons, daughters, grandmoms, husbands, fathers, and to the entire human family.
