Wishes for You on Mother’s Day

This post is dedicated to one of the most

amazing mothers I know, my baby sister, Lala.

With a career and three teenagers,

life can be overwhelming at times for

her sensitive soul…and I want her to

feel my love and admiration

across the miles.



The words here are also for mothers,

for everyone who ever had a mother,

which is to say, everyone…everywhere.

You are loved and chosen, and these wishes

are prayed from a heart captured

by divine mystery.

I wish you peace on the path away

from the frantic flurry of your thoughts…



…into quiet echoing whispers

of true love rising from hidden depths.

I wish you calm for stormy

seas maybe no one else sees…

…and friendship on a lonely day.


I wish you tender blue tranquility…



…and fiery ginger warmth.




I wish you a pocket of time

in which to collect your desires…


…and nature’s secret healing

to ease the tender aches.


I wish you wings to fly

to a gentler oasis in your heart…


…where a trustworthy energy

will hold you as you grow.


I wish you hushed humility to

return you to your center…


…and a soft shield of faith

to absorb piercing doubts and fear.


I wish you eyes with clear vision

to glimpse the sacred way up…


…and glimpse also the sacred way down.


I wish you strength to stand,

strength to kneel…


…and poetry to lift you when you fall.


I wish you salty oceans of tears

wept in pain, wept in love…


…and velvety warm sands

of forgiving grace.


I wish you melody when your

memory for the music fails…


…and mercy’s symphony

to open you to the everlasting.


I wish you protection from all harm

that would hold you…


…and steady steps upon this

quaking earth.


I wish you sweet rest

to undo every pain…



…and sweeter awakenings to golden stories of love.



I wish you peace

(not casually, not cheaply)

but deep peace of running waves,

luxuriant peace transcending all understanding,

deep peace right where you are.
