Julie this is lovely!
Seems a few people were inspired by this prompt to write about motherhood!


Never 'away' really though!


Children grow so fast, but even when they are grown up they are never really 'away,' as Derrick said.

(hopefully) away
from us and into

The bit of parental bravery that comes hardest is allowing kids to grow up and stand or fall on their own. Nicely written, Julie, as always!


nicely done Julie..thanks for sharing your words


Ah, the minefield of motherhood indeed! An outstanding poem, Julie.

I understand the wobbly chin. But it's a wonderful thing when those small people whose care is our responsibility and joy, become adults and metamorphose into best friends.

Julie, I had come here before this to comment but my comment did not go through. I don't know why.

I loved your work. Motherhood is the best thing that can happen to us.
