Flowers for Mother: Poetry, Quotes and Gifts for Mothers

Updated on July 31, 2012

Celebrating Mothers

Last year around Thanksgiving I began working on a project to celebrate mothers. As I thought of all the things I am thankful for in my life my mother was foremost on my mind. As Mother's Day approaches many of us are thinking of the best way to thank our mother for all that she has done for us. Mother's Day gives us one day of the year to celebrate our mothers, thank them and show them how much we care. This lens contains some poems from my mothers poetry collection, mothers quotes and mothers day poetry gift ideas. I hope you will find some ideas here for making your mother feel special not just this Mothers Day but everyday.

Love the Greatest Gift of All

Poems for Mothers by Injete Chesoni

How do you say thank-you

To the one who bore you

And gave you the gift of life

How do you say thank-you

To the angel who has constantly

Guided you through life

How do you say thank-you

To the one who has helped you

In all your moments of strife

How do you say thank-you to the one who

has loved you throughout your life

You can say thank-you with flowers

or gifts from expensive stores

You can buy her cards or chocolates

From the grocer next door

But the best way to thank her

Is to shower her with love

The greatest gift of all.

Flowers for Mother: A Daughter's Wishes

Daughter Mother Poems by Injete Chesoni

I wish you sunshine on your cloudy days

A burst of yellow to pierce the gray

I wish you spring's flowers on winter days

A burst of color in the midst of pale

I wish you rain when your fields are dry

A blossoming of life where flowers die

I wish you joy every single day

And smiles to wash your pain away

I wish you wings so that you can fly

With the angels in heaven's skies

I wish you the fulfillment

of dreams unfulfilled

And the contentment

that fulfillment brings

My dearest mother you see

I wish you all

that you have wished for me

On this and every single day

I wish you flowers

to brighten up your days.

Mothers Are God's Flowers

Mother Poems by Injete Chesoni

A mother is a flower

Plucked from heaven above

A gift God gives to children

To brighten their lives with love.

My Mother, My Angel

Mother Poems by Injete Chesoni

When my mother wraps her arms around me

I feel encircled by the love of God

And when she speaks words of wisdom to me

I hear the whisper of the Lord

When she wipes away my tears

I feel touched by the hand of God

I believe that she is an angel sent to me

From the land of the Lord.

Thanksgiving Prayer for Mothers

Thanksgiving and Mother Poems by Injete Chesoni

Thank you God for my mother's face

So full of beauty, love and grace.

Thank you God for my mother's smile

So full of kindness and motherly pride.

Thank you God for my mother's mind

That is so inspiring and wise.

Thank you God for my mother's arms

That always encircle me with love.

Thank you God for my mother's heart

That has loved me right from the very start.

Thank-you God for my mother's breast

Upon which I lay my worries to rest.

Thank you God for my mother's womb

The most comforting home I have known.

Thank-you God for my mother's thighs

The lap upon which I have cried so many times

Thank-you God for my mother's feet

That rush to save me from dangers I meet

But most of all thank-you God

For giving me the most wonderful Mother of All.

Poetry from: Thanksgiving Poems by Injete Chesoni.

Five Mothers Day Poetry Gift Ideas

The most popular Mothers Day gifts include flowers, chocolates, cards and once in a while home decor. This Mothers day consider giving your mother a gift that will last and which will constantly remind her of your love. Poetry gifts combine expressions of love and beautiful art that most mothers would appreciate. They are also available as practical gifts that she can use. Here are some poetry gift ideas for Mothers Day.

1. Poetry Art Posters and Flower Prints : Poetry posters are like greeting cards you can frame. They usually combine sentimental poetry and floral art. Your mother can use these framed poetry posters as office or home decor. I prefer these to a greeting card which she will store away once Mothers Day is over.

2. Wall Plaques and Framed Tiles: You can find decorative wall plaques which feature poems for mothers and floral art. You can even personalize some of these plaques with a special message of love from you.

3. Picture Frames: Picture frames are a popular Mothers Day gift. This Mothers Day consider giving your mother a picture frame which features a poem.

4. Jewelry and Keepsake Boxes with Poetry: Most mothers like to store trinkets and mementos. You can give your mother a keepsake box for storing all her wonderful memories. There are lots of beautiful gift keepsake boxes for Mothers Day including some with poetry.

5. Poetry Books: If your mother loves to read then consider buying her a poetry book with poems for mothers. You can choose from poetry books with mothers poems by famous authors or books that feature poetry and art.

      @anonymous: Poems are the true way to express one's love; with chocolates to "seal the deal" . Tell your mothers something about how much you appriciate how hard they work.
