A Tulip of Thanks


tulips tremble
with thanks for every raindrop, 
cleansing, nourishing

like mothers whose tears come from
laughter when thumped at Parcheesi

Notes: You guessed it. My children are blockading me, thumping me, sending me home, but I smile, groan and roll the dice. And laugh! Happy Mother’s Day! And for my mother, I left a poem for her birthday.
