this day in joy perceived
the blessings of motherhood received
a day of skies so bright and fair
the embrace of life in soulful care
gifts of Presence and gratitude be known
tenderness of love so graciously shown
a Monday hour in reflection of moment now
a Mother's Day past heeds to a blessed vow
Mother and sons in joy they be
this Mother's Day brought unto me
a feeling of purpose and destiny defined
an ever opening path within this heart mine
an arch of stone passed we graced by sun's light
labors of a yesterday this day held in delight
through this passage of time and place
our journey of love within heart trace.

In loving gratitude to Patrick, Karen and Christopher,
Indeed a most beautiful day spent in Central Park, New York City with my two sons, Patrick and Christopher and beloved Karen. Promenading, boating, dining, all shared delight in totality.
