Mother's Day Haiku

what is motherhood
fiery furnace, well of joy
never a dull day

*

sunshine and laughter
scraped knees and college degrees
reading books in bed

*

gift from God to some
others suffer empty wombs
blessing and sorrow

*
what is motherhood
tiny toes and grandpa's nose
mix of thorn and rose
