Today’s suggested prompt for OctPoWriMo is “Mother”. This is a topic fraught with emotion for me so I decided to do an Acrostic to keep a little distance from me and the subject. Though not my favorite poetry form, perhaps it has its place.


Mothers, I have three

One that birthed me

The one that adopted me

Husband’s mother added later

Each one could not see nor hear me

Relationships of one sided love

So much growth from loss


OctPoWriMo Day 15 “Mother”

Published by: writersdream9

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
