Blizzard’s Charm

We mothers have a primal urge:
Protect, nourish, and warm,
Those in our care, whether young or old.

And so we watch the leaden skies:
Wait, anticipate the storm,
Plot out our plans, safe from gathering cold.

We brave the winds though they be fierce:
Face brute threats of harm,
To serve the helpless sheep within our fold.

“Make cinnamon rolls!” a small one cries:
A waif-like, fragile form,
“And popcorn balls!” Her voice becomes more bold.

So mothers do what they have done:
Maintain maternal charm,
By making sure this tale’s forever told.

  1. Ah, Katy. You totally capture snow days! We moms have to do SOMETHING to keep the troops happy when they're going to be underfoot all day.

  2. You are so right Rachelle. Katy really knows how to express everything that is going on in the moment and season. As seasons change I really enjoy visiting here to read your lovely work. Thanks for everything Katy!

  3. Often, charm bracelets are started at a memorable point in a person's life, usually given to them as a gift. This is referred to as a starter bracelet and every once in a while, as new events and memories arise, the wearer will add to their bracelet.
