  1. Hi Ellen. Your poem reminds me that sadness is dispelled by consideration of nature’s wonder. For example, I always find wild birds a comfort. Jane

      1. And the sound of the rushing brook through the woods. It seems to wash the emotions away and cools the sorrow too.

  2. Ellen, this is the best haiku I’ve read in ages–“sorrow turns to stars” really reflects my heart, and a number of my poems (regardless that mine are not specific to “mother”). Very lovely. God bless you today–have a wonderful Mother’s Day.

    1. Dear Colleen, Thank you very much for your lovely nomination. Awhile ago, I decided it’s best for me to not accept awards with requirements. Thanks for including your link for readers.

      I am always so grateful for visits, the many kind thoughts, “likes of posts,” and helpful comments! Ellen

  3. This is so beautiful, Ellen. A gift for which I thank you. I’ve been sad looking at the Mother’s Day cards, knowing I don’t have to buy one (although when I first saw them out in the stores I forgot, for just a moment).

    1. Good morning, Margaret. Yes beautiful memories! Hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend. I’m sitting at the kitchen table, by the patio door, and the gardens are overflowing already. The red geraniums are back outside–one on a chair and one by the door. Farmers are planting too. Thank you! Love, Ellen
