Mothers Departure A CHALENGE CONTEST MAY #15

This poem-- MOMS SMILES depicts her departure the new home
no where
on an airy road
to no where

yet it speaks of the whole truth
inch by inch
as she crept into the wilderness
created for all

no lack of space
all are
and will be welcome
one day

this happened five decades away
can any one relay

And responds, please be courteous

Further that I did with this piece. Your highlighted moments within the poem are dramatic, tho.

I would alter the title a bit: “This poem MOMS SMILES depicts her departure“ to only “Her Departure”

‘Course, if you were making this a contest entry, then the title is to include the subject of the contest…. And if you were making this a contest entry, you should also use the drop down menu on the Submit page to delineate it.

Ray gives you good advice. I can see your Mom smiling, she had many smiles for you and your love. ~ Geez.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

my well wishers
will amend
its no competition
just my remembrance
it so happens
hurray for mom
all moms
