Hello Gloria,
An excellent free verse poem for Mother's day
or any other day.
It is the connection, passed down from one generation to another
The strength that flows from the reservoirs built up over time
Forever linked, genetically, physically, emotionally
Well done
Best wishes to you, my friend
Robert

I enjoyed the strong sense of connection in your poem across generations. A perfect poem for a Mother's Day contest entry and a wonderful tribute to mothers.

I loved this poem which depicts the strong bond between mother and daughter.

We are all products of our childhood influences and clearly us women will always remember the lessons we learned from our mothers who fought through thick and thin to give us the best life possible.

hugs

I think this was strong. I loved the way the language here just unrolled and unrolled, very musical, very rhythmic, and yet very conversational. The repetitions in the first lines, with slight variations, gave it a haunting, minimalist feel at times. I loved the images too. this feel of mothers and daughters blending into and out of each other, lending themselves to each other. The last image of the footprints, the lasting footprints, gives it a sense of permanence, of memory, of significance. Nice job with this poem estory

Your poem suggest, perhaps, the likenesses and the differences shared by three different generations. Differences, that in some cases, may have made it difficult to love unconditionally. But with the passing of time and with unbiased reflection, the desire shared by each of those mothers, to love unconditionall Just my take.y, can now be brought to fruition. Just my take.

I was raised by a strong grandmother and mother. My father worked far from home and my grandfather was a grumpy, selfish, and lazy man. I've always had great respect for females and feel that in many ways they are superior to men. It's just the way I was raised. Your poem was very nice and reminded me of my youth. Best wishes.

Mom's are the best. She had it a bit tougher in her day but she never showed it. I would hope had I a daughter that she would be most like my mom, my niece is and she is such a wonderful girl. Very nicely said. Hope you do well in the contest.
