So here we are again, Mothering Sunday. May all you wonderful mums have a grand day.

My wee love poem below is very loosely modelled on a traditional Japanese form, Tanka.


This will be the last time
I sit here with that tree
coming into blossom.

My star has risen
beyond the Dee.

    What a beautiful poem I just love the total atmosphere of the poem. And how lovely that you dedicate it to mum’s day. Oh how touchingxx
