Word-High July: Gunita


Cold mornings and a fuel stove

Huddled round the fire

Munching our breakfast

Shivered conversations

The delivery of a hot meal

Always guaranteed to be

Overdone, burnt, a challenge.

But never detracting from what was important

Your love for us, your care.

A mother I cherish.

As years slip away

Your memory stays strong.

    My Mum used to make the best braised steak and onion casserole and Irish stew. One serve was never enough 😀

    awww. This reminds me of a book my favorite author wrote. It’s For One More Day by Mitch Albom. It says that you can see the purest love in your mother’s face. 🙂
    Lovely, lovely, take! ❤

    A lovely poem Michael. One which brings to the fore the love and kindness mothers provide. Thank you for sharing.
