I've been out of town visiting my mom who has been having some problems. She was taken from her home for safety reasons and put in a rehabilitation center. Supposedly she has some symptoms of alzheimers disease. I found my mother to be still cheerful and smiling. She was still positive and her mind was still in very good condition. The poem, "Sitting with mom," was written with my mother sitting right beside me. Seeing my mother in such a cheerful good mood really made me feel good. It also lifted my spirit. I'm back home now and my experience with my mother motivated this poem.

From the sky came thunder,
lighting flashes yonder .
The wind was caught in sail,
signs of both heaven and hell.
The forces of mother nature,
moved every living creature.

She stood strong like an oak,
even as lifes forces tried too soak.
Life had its way,
but not all of the say.
There are those who fight,
every stroke of evil fright.

Through expected dictations,
life scorns its relations.
Heaven and hell become topic,
every little icon microscopic.
We expect certain disections,
either accept or do corrections.

She was staring life right in eye,
there was no doubt of her defy.
Still cheerful and smiling,
the loss of everything so chilling.
You could never tell
she was at end,
negative signals she
would not send.
