This is a lovely tribute to single mothers all over Dean. My daughter is one and she is one that's put her daughter's needs first and now she is a lovely young woman, her mother's best present. I love the descriptive, S alliteration,
great write.
cheers,
valda

An alliteration avalanche, from start to finish this is so creative Dean, love the message and the wonderful way it smoothly flows. Excellent.

This senryu, Soulful Soliloquies, framed as a 5-7-5, finds Mom smoothing life out in the absence of a father figure. The alliteration raises this poem to a higher level. Nice.

    Thank you for reading, Bill.
    I thought I'd entered this in the 5-7-5 contest but somehow messed up and missed the boat.
    Take care, and thanks for your review.

A mother faces a great challenge when she raises her children alone. She and her children can, even so, find a strength of character that surprises others, and wins their admiration.

Excellent senryu Dean. My niece is one of those single working moms and she definitely is dedicated to her son with her tireless efforts to make a good life for him.

Well done.

Blessings
Janet

Hi Dean. Nice to see you tonight. I learned something. I thought a Senyru was 5-7-5 but could be less. It is so true that single responsible mothers do not get to pursue their own dreams because their kids' dreams come first. Great poem. Thank you for sharing

Dean, you sure know how to pull the reader in with that exceptional art work of yours. My mother did her best with us three boys. My dad was an alcoholic...Nuff said.

And love the fifties art too! HOW I miss what I consider the good old days when I didn't have problems or know of the worlds ilk. Too many kids today without two folks. Tradition has flown away. Nice work Dean, as always. S.

Hello Dean, a beautiful senryu and dedication to all hardworking single mothers. My mom was one of them. She worked two jobs ... job #1 from 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. ... and job #2 from 6:30 p.m. to Midnight, and then, after standing for many hours on her second job, she had the pleasure of a long walk home in all types of weather. She worked 6.5 days a week. Dean, your poem is filled with good alliteration and excellent vocabulary usage. Good 5/7/5 format. Well-chosen artwork choice. A pleasure to read. As this is a contest entry, I wish you good luck. LateBloomer
