Excerpt two – New Mother

Rosebud for New Mother
One of my beautiful roses starting to open.

by Rose Klix

II. New Mother
a rosebud

Moments ago, just a young green bud,
barely showed color. Yet new life
sprouts inside you with sunshine and tears.
Heavenly rain droplets glisten leaves,
help you grow. Learn patient love.
Be a good example.
Learn fast for your new seedling.
Thank you for always doing your best.

Poet’s comment: “This stanza from my poem Roses of Motherhood brings to mind my experiences as a new mother. I was immature but learned fast as I could. It’s the hardest job I ever accepted, but I always tried my best for my two sons, Scott and Erik.” Rose Klix
