Day 22 SOL 16: A Trip to Mom's

Where the mountains
touch the sky.
Where the water 
shimmers of sapphire.

Where spring 
comes earlier.
Where flowers 
color the earth.

Where brown 
has long since gone.
Where everywhere
the world is green.  

Where games 
are required.
Where winning
is not.

Where dessert
comes first. 
Where laughter
reigns.

Where no matter
how old you think you might you be,
you will cared for,
and reminded 
there's no better place
than a trip to mom's.

  4. Love the repetition of "where" - it ties everything to this one special place - Mom's. What a special place it must be. My mom was the same - games required, only for her winning was necessary!
    Dessert, mountains, water, green, and games - your mom's sounds like a wonderful place.

  5. Great poem! You are right that no matter how old we get, time spent with our moms is precious.
