NIGHT RIDE by Sancheeta Biswas (Art by Coenen Theo)

drifters at night come
and go, a look, a ride.
 lanterns swing in a row
wind struck my node,
lights off the code.

deep dark blue
canvas painting you
shooting stars speak 
war and warriors creep
the sword cuts so steep
the sword cuts so deep
breaking the silence
love, a leap.

true or false,
silly or lily,
trumpets noise,
thorned red rose,
dipped in melancholy.

dreaming is a glue 
you are stuck all through
stretching arms foil, 
centric lovely hue.

hopes cascade to brook
love bubbles enamor the look
rantings slow down in pain
the war is over again.
waiting sun to rise
wanting love to be wise.

Amazing Grace by MaryPoet

Artwork by Suzana Dancks

AMAZING GRACE It is the natural order. Some never give thanks. Taking for granted all that is good and sound. Natural, never to delve deep within, nor face the emotions that lay like sleeping volcanoes. Scared … unsure … selfish? Divinity within us is possible yet seldom sought. Amazing Grace … is a gift. The gift that keeps on giving deserving or not. Placed at our feet, yet often unappreciated, and stomped, it fades to dormant. Amazing Grace … a child is born. And then he dies. Amazing Grace … the warm sun rising then setting; the brilliance of the moon and stars trailing. Amazing Grace … each breath leading to the next. Amazing Grace … the sustenance of life, health and being. Amazing Grace … family and fiends, blood of blood and caring. Amazing Grace … miraculous love found once in a lifetime. Thank you, thank you … my loving God … thank you for all. Copyright MaryR 6/15/2009

How The Mother's Day Started by Cherry Lauren Diwaten

The second Sunday in May has been set aside in honor of motherhood. Many churches have special services in which they honor Mothers of the congregation. They usually present the oldest Mom, youngest Mom, and Mom with the most children a corsage.
There is a custom of wearing a carnation on Mother's Day. A colored carnation means that the person's Mother is living. A white carnation indicates that a person's mom is dead.
Years ago, England observed what they called Mothering Sunday. It came in Mid-Lent.
The first suggestion for a day set aside to honor Mothers was made by Julia Ward Howe. She suggested that it be observed on June 2, as a day dedicated to peace.
Julia was born in 1819 in New York to a prominent family. She was an American writer, lecturer, and reformer. She was known as one of the most famous women of her time. She wrote "The Battle Hymn of the Republic", which was inspired when she visited military camps in Washington, D.C., during the Civil War in 1861. It became the major war song of the Union forces.
Julia became interested in the women's movement. She became the first president of the New England Woman Sufferage Association.
Three years after Frank Hering of Indiana launched his campagin for observance of Mother's Day in 1904, Anna Jarvis began a campaign to a nationwide obervance of Mother's Day. She chose the second Sunday in May. She also began the custom of wearing the carnation.
Jarvis' own Mother was honored on the first service at Andrews Methodist Episcopal Church in Grafton,West Virginia, on May 10, 1908. Later, at the general assembly in 1912, a delegate from Andrews Church introduced a resolution recognizing Jarvis as the founder of Mother's Day, and suggested that Mother's Day be observed on the second Sunday in May.
President Woodrow Wilson signed a joint resolution in Congress on May 9, 1914, recommending that the federal government observe Mother's day. The next year, the president was authorized to proclaim an annual holiday.

Through her creative ways taught us our first recognitions of colors and shapes, 
and by her tolerance let us scribble and doodle our first mural on living room walls. 
How she still manage to smile even if she had difficulty removing paint on our shirts.  
Sorry mother, I ran out of red...I used your lipstick instead.
