“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…
I am to
a part of me
I wasn’t born with.
How lucky to have
learned it from
you and made
it a part

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 😉
namaste – con dios – god be with you
