a wonderful description! ! ! I loved so much the stanza of separation! ! ! We were separated and you became “you”... Bravo this maternal poem deserves 10!
Almedia, I love how each child is so different and so special. The love cheque to deposit and to share your rainbow such artistic and clever comments. I have read 'to find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, at first we need to feel the rain'. The colors in the last stanza are wonderful. 10 Karin Anderson
