Gratitude breaks the spell of Writers Block
Jalál (Glory), 13 Jamál (Beauty) 177 B.E. Saturday, May 9, 2020
It's the day before Mother's Day!
is a day of joy and sadness,
of laughter and tears,
of memories that come unbidden
into a daughter's mind.
It's been 8 years,
since I celebrated Mother's Day
with my mother.
On Mom's last Mother's Day,
I remember her laughing,
but I can't remember why she laughed;
perhaps it was at a silly joke I told
or something we watched on television.
It doesn't matter why she was laughing,
because it was her laughter
that was important
and keeps echoing through my mind.
