A while back, Rocks in My Dryer sponsored a Mom-themed haiku contest, the winner to receive $1,000 from Egg Beaters.  Never content to write just one poem, I wrote several.  In honor of Mother’s Day today, I thought I’d share the three I ended up submitting.  I’m not wild about haiku, but these were surprisingly enjoyable to write:   

Thank God for Mama,
she gave me the rarest gift–
Genes with perfect fit!

Took me years to learn
Mother really does know best.
"Kids, you have ’til noon."

Mama taught me this:
"Please" and "Thank-You" always work
Whining never does!

If you’re feeling haiku-ish, feel free to write your own mom-themed poems in comments :).
