[Poetry Friday] On Mothers and Daughters

Featured poem by Noor Unnahar

Fats here.

Thank you, Jama of Alphabet Soup for hosting this week!

Happy Friday! I hope you all had a nice week, especially for those of you who returned to work. It has been two weeks since some of our staff reported for office duties, while our library remains closed to the public. Not surprisingly, there’s a lot of work to be done as we prepare to offer curbside pick up and returns.

Flowers are still gorgeous almost a week later. Photo sent by Daniel’s mom.

Mother’s Day was celebrated last Sunday. Daniel and I ordered flowers that were delivered to his mom the day before. The Mother’s Day feast from our local steakhouse was so tempting, but we opted for the flowers instead. Family feast will have to wait a bit more.

Today, I’m excited to introduce a new-to-me writer with a poem that pays tribute to the writer’s mother. Noor Unnahar is a twenty-two-year-old artist, writer, and social media personality. The poem featured below is taken from her collection, yesterday i was the moon.

Fats is the Assistant Manager for Circulation Services at the Wayne County Public Library in Wooster, Ohio. She considers herself a reader of all sorts, although she needs to work on her non-fiction reading. Fats likes a good mystery but is not too fond of thrillers. She takes book hoarding seriously and enjoys collecting bookmarks and tote bags. When she is not reading, Fats likes to shop pet apparel for her cat Penny (who absolutely loathes it).

    Gorgeous, Fats. I love the idea of knowing “how to dwell in the sky”. I hope you are doing well, too. We still have no news about our libraries opening. I’m sure it’s a huge challenge for everyone.
