A Mother’s Love
The distinction of being a mother, understood by almost every single female on this planet, is to be fore-sworn as needs be, in the protection of her children! She will stand strong with this understanding, as necessary, on this battling planet called Earth!
She will stand alone, if she must. But she will stand and if she is struck down then another female will come to take her place. She is a female and a mother and when none other will do – she will insure that … life goes on!

This week’s Haibun Thinking Writer’s Challenge is the writing of haibun using a photo or a drawing as the prompt. I have chosen the beautiful drawing by Anja for my prompt. This was probably the easiest haibun I have ever written because as a mother, who loved her mother and so forth and so on, I know the truth of the words I write (as it is found repeatedly in history and today around the planet).
For more information about how you can be a part of this weekly writers challenge click HERE! Join in! Try your hand at haibun writing. I know a few of you writers out there and I think you’d be great at this style of writing!
Hoping everyone’s week is proceeding in a positive manner, take care of you,

Having lost a mother very early in life and not having the privilege of birthing a child myself, I still felt that bond with my younger siblings who I stepped in to help raise. This is a lovely post Penny.
Hi LuAnn. Thanks, dear friend of mine! I understand perfectly. You became the “mother needed” out of love. 🙂 xo
Wonderful tribute to mother-hood Penny … well done!
Thanks Bastet. I’ve done a ton of historical research, sort of behind the scenes type of research on “mothers” quite amazing stuff actually. Well, not really if you’re a mom yourself. 🙂
Yes, Peny, the qualifier if you’re a mom, changes the perspective and we realize that that stuff is the everyday stuff of common place miracles … happy research … 😉
What a lovely post Penny. In the majority of cases, the mother will make sure that their babies are cared for, no matter the age of them 🙂
Thank you Alastair. This is true, holds true with animals as well! a natural thing, I think (for the most part)! 🙂
I think so as well
Great depiction of a mother’s love.
Thank you, very much, Yoshiko!
Most welcome, Penny 🙂
I’m so glad to see Haibun Thinking again!
Perhaps you might write one Brenda! 🙂
What an interesting take on this prompt Penny. I agree that women are enduring, remarkable as they are.
Thanks, Michael. Some less than others. And some just amazingly so! Even those who birth no children, like Mother Teresa, yet all children were hers! Remarkable woman! 🙂
