On this Mother's Day (and birthday) weekend let us dwell,
On all the things that Mom does so well.
She keeps us updated on family news,
From Rae-Dawn's puppy to Marlowe's poos
She champions the environment and is on city council,
And also writes plays as if time somehow stood still.
On top of all this she takes the best care of Dad,
Who, let's face it could make even the calmest person a little mad.
She does all this without a care for herself,
And just continually puts her own needs up on the shelf.
She is the glue that holds this family together,
One of a kind, a mother like no other.
So Happy Mother's Day (and birthday) to the best mom we could ask for,
From your expanding Zuckerman kids family that started with just four.
I’ve been told before time is linear
I feel it’s more akin to a cylinder
Circling through birthdays, extending each year
tracing life like an uncoiled slinky
Though we walk through the exact same doors
This year, next, as we did years before
We fight the inertial and entropic force
We hope not to remain who we once were
As the gardener you see past the weeds
supporting young growth, pruning wayward trees
You challenge us to stretch and reach for the light
In return, our love in words we all write
Happy Anna Day Mum
Baby pictures in lieu of submission
My mother is an infinite light
From within she lets it shine
There is glowing energy in her bones
And a vibrant rainbow in her soul
Sunny, cheerful yellow
She is calm, cool, and mellow
Sweet orange and gold
She is kind, compassionate, and warm
Deep firey red hues
She is passionate and fiercely true
Country sunset blues
She is serene, mindful, attuned
Bright lavender purple
She is eclectic and creative with purpose And lastly forest green
She is natural and ever nurturing
And so I like to marvel
At my mother and her rainbow
And when she smiles
Each color shines clear as day
