Prompt 15: Mother’s Day Poem

May 14th is Mother’s Day, and what better way to express your love to your mom than writing a poem dedicated to her? This weekend, write an ode, haiku, or free verse poem about your mom or mothers in general.

This one goes out to my mom!

Do you remember, Mum?
When I blew my bubble bubble gum
bigger than my head
then it popped and Dad said
we had to cut off all my hair
but you said don’t you dare
you took care of my hair
with a little trial and error
my hair was gum-free
and my heart full of glee

Mum, do you remember?
I think it was December
you woke up at dawn
to help me put my makeup on
you fixed my too-big dress
and my hair which was a mess
I’m so grateful
you helped me feel beautiful
thank you for helping me feel
like a princess for real

Mum, do you know?
I love you so
