Japanese Mother and Child....

The bluest of blue skies,

Hugs that hold us high,

Spirits cleansed in truth,

Voice finally tuned by the mind’s eye

Pink cherry blossom’s tree bough

hangs with Chi ease,

Releasing blessings of beauty and fertility

through the trill of the Blue Bird of Nipponese

Mother Asumi gently caresses her daughter’s hand,

Child Chiho, adoringly gazes up

into Mother Asumi’s eyes, that shine love and beauty,

Just like the flowering garden’s grace cup


Trails of red magic Lillis,

with graceful red Camellias,

Speak of future space of Mother and Child

Where the bond off familia is reconciled

Mother Asumi and child Chiho

Laugh and dance in a circle

Through the piles of cherry blossom petals,

Life feels full and strong like royal purple

On a last note, to give is to share,

To nurture is to receive

You can live the long life of the Crane,

And as a sunburst, which is abundance, vive

Which Japanese Poet would you like to read?

      This poem was not only about a mother and her child but also what can happen between the birther and birthee of a creative idea. Exploring what it can feel like when we like and hold onto a creative idea. Happy you stopped by and read this poem, eric.
