If Mom’s Were…
Original Poetry by Felipe Adan Lerma
Category : Family Poems
If Mom’s Were…
If moms were rainbows
you would always be the
first and last colors shining.
If moms were angels
you’d be my highest guardian.
If moms were roses
you’d open cheerfully at daybreak
and guide me from the thorns of life.
If moms were dreams
you’d be my deepest sleep.
If moms were stars
you’d be my guiding light.
And if moms were money
you’d never be spent foolishly
but forever saved wisely in my heart.

dVersePoets OpenLinkNight, Mother’s Day, and “If Mom’s Were…”
one of the advantages of posting to dVersePoets OpenLinkNight, and participating in their open call prompt for poetry, is being able to merge something i want to post, with a poem i need to post, and be part of the camaraderie with a great group of original and “very” diverse yet talented poets -
do check out their link below joseph hesch, tonight’s host, has some witty description of tending the poetry bar and ties it to one of his favorite emily dickinson poems
the biggest celebration after Christmas is fast approaching, and i’ve a few poems i’ve posted over the years i wanted to add to
recently i posted a new poem, “aging gracefully into mother’s day“, which is part of my family poems in general on my site (includes dad, babies, all those good relationships we’ve hopefully be able to enjoy)
“If Mom’s Were…”
written almost twenty years ago now, amazing!
this is one of my older favorite family poems, where i created a self prompt, before i knew there was such a thing as “a” prompt
i did many many poems in this style, saying what an idea or person “was” if they were something else
my wife sheila and i sold these little poems in art and mall shows all through the 90s, personalizing them on the spot, printing them out, and matting and backing them with mats and foam core i cut myself at home
all i asked of myself was to find an image that felt right to me emotionally, and see if i could phrase it in a nice way
i think that is part of what i like about dVersePoets, especially their open link night feature which circles round each week, a poet or artist can create what is dearest to his or her heart right then, in the style that suits, in the words that mean the most
mother’s day is just a month away now, and though it really exists all year round watching and celebrating its approach might mean a little more, especially to the mom
best wishes everyone!
