“step mom” – mother’s day week of original poetry


step moms and dads can be tricky, even if they’re great

one doesn’t always have the familiarity-luxury of one’s own parents, and how we’re ingrained in our behavior with them

i suppose this opens up the opportunity to evolve something new with a parent-like figure, learn something new, be someone new…



How wonderful

and thankful

I am to



shown me

a part of me

I wasn’t born with.

How lucky to have

learned it from

you and made

it a part

I’ve run out of stock of my matted copies of this poem but will soon have it available on Fine Art America.

At FAA one can choose from a variety of sizes, including small prints or posters, a canvas print or acrylic print, and even a small pillow or tote.

if, as i mentioned in this week’s first poem in my mother’s day week of poems, a parent might be our first, our own given-guru, i guess a step-mom or dad could be like the substitute teacher 😉

don’t worry, either way, i believe, we’re entitled to and expected to out-grow our guru-need –

not saying anything ’bout all those threads of human feelings woven into us 😉
