There is Mom (poem)

There is Mom
by Tim Kavi

so what is this?
across the translucent orb
endless universe so vast
that God in his designs
would seek to make perfect
for sure to last?

but the need for what He created
man or woman
to never be alone?

but the sacredness
of family
of love
and of home?

and in that home
stands a sacred one
sure and true

the fortress of Mom

which every kid
growing up, knew
is true blue
in all she said
and did

until around
every troubled bend
twisted by life's
and uncertain wind?

there is the love
of God
and the love of Mom

gently guiding
assisting in fate
but always loving

there is Mom
there is Mom.

This poem will be read by me later today, at my mom's funeral. My mom was a wonderful person and parent, as well as a poet. I cannot ever surmise how important she was and is, to me and my work. In some small way, I hope this helps others to understand the importance of Moms. There are many mothering influences in the Universe. I love you, mom ! --T.K.

Glimpses of You (Poem)

Glimpses of You
by Tim Kavi

seeing you
I see art moving
on a canvas of love
riding on waves
across a glassy sea

dressed in a dress
of your womanly

it seizes my senses
until I always
dream of you

for God made you
so beautiful
I am shaken
by your love
moved by your
inspired by your heart

you are
to me
our love's work of art
love work's greatest

whenever I see you
it is still not done
but reworked
in the glistening
lines of your love

I see
on the camera
of your love

your eternal kisses
are the art
of our love

your loving arms
hug me
in stanzas
of our love

your eyes
tell novels
in the story
of our love

and then
there is upon
all this in You

and so much more
as I beheld you
in loving
glimpses of You.
