Today is my mom’s 86th birthday, so I wrote her a poem:


My mother is a sewing machine

Stitching life together like a quilt.

She can make anything grow

as the needle whirs and punctures

Creating history.

    you just made me miss my mom..

  6. Hope your mother had a wonderful day… With you as a daughter it would be impossible not to, I think. Your poem goes in a thousand different directions – though metaphorical in quilting I see so many other things you are saying, sparking memories of my own love and mother. That’s how a true poet touches emotion Shawn. Your vision and ability to create the reader’s vision of it is just simply wonderful….

  7. She sounds like my mom 🙂
