Throwback Friday: MY MOTHER by Liyona

It didn’t matter the time or the day.

She would smile and hold my hand

take me through life’s troubles and protect me

My mother

Wiser than the rooftop owl

with lovely eyes and hands

that create majesty

She toiled during my childhood years

She works even harder now

but I love to see her soul in the paint

strokes that sing anew

With paint she shows her laughing smile and

bright mind

My mother

I love her

her art reminds me of home


Liyona is an “average joe” kind of writer who likes to think about ordinary things and then write them down. Ever since she can remember, she has been rhyming words and creating lyric poems. During her college years, she took a more serious bent toward writing and started to post on her blog (The Life and Times of a Quirky Character.) Currently, she resides on the East Coast of the United States just north of the country’s capital. Photo by Matt Hoffman on Unsplash.
