Some Days I just Wonder

Wonderwoman!
Able to jump three weeks of laundry
In a single bound
Grocery shop, make meals
And scream without a sound
Help with homework
Help find sneakers
Help clean messes
Help wipe tears
Help at school
And Help keep peace
Won't someone
Help her, please?


For Poetry Jam at poetryjaam.blogspot.com, Brian asked us to write about a superhero—flashed back to when the kids were small and my man and I were working 60 hours, barely finding time to breathe. Plus, I've always loved that name “Wonderwoman” :-)

    1. Hi Helen! I look back and honestly don't know I did all that-- especially since I only work part time now and can't seem to find time to do anything:-)

    1. Hi Brian! You really made me laugh--in empathy:-) those car rides can be very trying, and the kids will probably remember it as that great trip with Dad...

  5. If only moms could fly, then nothing could stop them, even when they bark, "Tidy your room!". I loved this.

  6. This is why I think the Holy Spirit is female in essence, the Divine Sophia. That's my real superhero!

    Remember "Volume Control Grrl"? My superhero could turn down the volume on boomboxes and booming car stereos with a flick of the wrist, ha ha.

    Mother, thy name is Wonder Woman! Amy

  10. I'm laughing my head off! It's funny how people praise men for putting gazebos up, fixing machinery and sorting out the shed. Yet, we forget our everyday heroes (or heroines, rather). Beautiful and straight-to-the-point poem! :-)

    Greetings from London.
