What My Mom Left Me (Novelinee) - Poem by Cynthia BuhainBaello

Sometimes memories of my Mom and me
an aging daughter's stories of delight
my children often hear quite randomly,
her love for art that bless with hand and sight.
She taught me skills and crafts I now pass on
her lessons to the next generations,
wise use of time for things that can be done
with hobbies, joy is the compensation,
in times of need, the handy solution.

My Mom loved to sew and make home decors from scrap cloth and ribbons - a hobby we learned as children. I set up a home business with my daughters making these things and this wall decor is one of our products.

Novelinee - 9 lines in 10 syllables, with ab/ab/cd/cd/d rhyme scheme.
