My Mother’s Face Is Beautiful

I spent the day today with my mom. Here’s my poem for NaPoWriMo.


My Mother’s Face Is Beautiful

It’s always been that way.
Years of love have softened her gaze,
have created an ease
and an aura
that welcome me,
no matter what the weather.

My mother’s face is beautiful.
And always will be so.



A poem a day for April

  1. Another wonderful poem, Cheryl. It’s a truly touching homage to your mom–and how blessed you must feel in your relationship with her!
