Mom’s “S” Word

SONY DSC

Because At Least We Are Reading

Mom is strict, but
She bends the rules
On her “s” word
Whenever we carpool
Past the billboard

We read and read
Loud as we can
From the back seat 
Until the best-sign-ever
Disappears from sight

  1. Oh is this ever fun. And I love the perspective here that I don’t remember you using before. And this could have been a little snapshot of my childhood.

    • Or mine. Thank you for lending your photo to my poem!

      I have fond memories of passing the sign in Milwaukee when you and our other writer friends were in the car. There was a lot of reading aloud going on. ;)

  2. OH MY GOSH – I LOVED THIS!!
    this post at this time? You’ll never know how much I needed your playful words or the humor. Thanks Lori, you have a gift!
