Poetry……by Debbie Jeffrey
“THROUGH A MOTHER’S EYES”
Warm wooly blankets, some pink and some blue, drool on chins and on Mommy, too. Spoons full of pablum decorating the floor, alarms set to go off at ten, two and four,
Midnight rockings and the crack of dawn, sleepytime eyes and half hidden yawns, Four teeth in the front, two bottom, two top. A belly so full you would think it might pop.
Tricycles, puppy dogs, roller skates, balls, bicycles, kitty cats, and boxes and dolls. Chocolatey fingers and a jelly smeared face, tiny hands clasped and heads bowed to say grace.
Frogs in the bathtub and bugs in a jar, marchmallows and bubble gum squished in the car. Skinned knees and brused elbows, hearts broken in two, small arms that reach out for no one but you.
Notebooks and pencils, report cards and smiles, earrings and tight jeans and telephone dials. Car keys in duplicates, class rings and friends, mini-skirts, long hair and unnerving trends.
A cap and a gown and a kiss on the cheek, a suitcase, a college, an “I’ll see you next week”. A husband, a wife, a woman, a man, a tiny new baby. Life starts over again!
Debbie has spent the past 47 years as a mom and singing background vocals in TMJ’s bands. She’s been writing poetry since she was a small child. Her poems “Through A Mother’s Eyes”, “The Mirror”, “Mom”, and “If There Were No Tomorrow” have won state and national awards from Creative Arts and Science Enterprise and the Kentucky State Poetry Society. Her poetry has appeared in Berry & Associates Poetry Review; Quiet Times Report; Quiet Times Poetry Quarterly; and Paducah Life Magazine.
