Poetry for My Mama (in honor of her birthday)

My Mama

My mama like a southern meal

Gourmet delight that makes us squeal

To have a taste of dis and dat

Our tastes bud happy, stomachs fat.

My mama like the food she cook,

All spicy, saucy, just take a look

And sometimes hot as cayenne peppah

Just ask that Mose, the one that kept her

My mama like her strawberry cake

Spread 10 feet long on a cookie plate

Cant never seem to get enuff

Of her warm hugs and lovin’ touch.

My mama like that hog head cheese

That she whips up and then she freeze

Intwined/intwixed all in the Word

Disturb her peace, now that’s absurd!

My mama like her pot of greens

Dem turnips, mustards, what a dream

Got her beside me, don’t need a lot

Except some corn bread by the pot

My mama’s like her sun tea sweet

Brewed by the Son, our Jesus meek

Shes irreplaceable you see,

My culinary potpourri.

For my irreplaceable, sassy, phenomenal mom, Mrs. Catherine Williams on her 83rd birthday! I love that woman!

Happy boomer gal ( read smart, feisty, quirky, adventuresome, funny, sassy woman of a certain generation) willing to share my journey and advice with anyone who would not repeat my mistakes. Happy to fully disclose the joys and pitfalls of love at any age, the desire to age well, and the joys inherent in every day. Utilizing poetry, photography, and whatever creative entity that would bring a smile to a hurting heart. Author, wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend, humanitarian, exhorter, educator, activist, student, Christ-follower, adventure seeker, pharmacist. Hoping to give all and use all I am for the good of others. Come along. The journey may be difficult, but, it will always be an interesting adventure!
