Adeeyoyo's Blog

I write what I feel…




Like any sample of humanity

Mothers vary from kind and loving

Generous spirits

To mean, long-suffering

Tartars and martyrs,

From plodding dinosaurs

To social butterflies.

Care-full or care-less

Chances of getting a great mother

Are just as good as they are bad,

But we view one another,

Offspring and mother,

Through rose tinted lenses of love.


I shall not be putting any more posts on my blog until WordPress have fixed up all their problems, eg. email notifications from other blogs for which I have not asked.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. Oh yes, love seen through rose-tinted glasses tends to change the view.

    I have had the same problem, Denise. It’s the first time I have ever had a problem with WP. I unchecked the e-mail follow up box at each blog; it has taken care of the problem.

    • Yip, Maxi, we all seem to view our mothers with a special tenderness.

      I am all sorted, thank goodness! I received an excellent email from Jack at poemsandponderings and it sorted it all out at the very root! Anyone else needing help, I can forward his email to you…


  2. So true, Adee. I’m so glad that I got the Mom I did. 😉 xxx


  3. The mother I have known longest and most closely is, of course, June, the mother of our whole family. I see the total love and hero worship in our daughters, and the love of our sons for this beautiful lady. Is it any wonder we have been married for 46 years
    By the way Denise, I have had the same problems. Rivers of emails!!


  4. You’re right we do love the mom that we got. Cause she was chosen just for us.


  5. WordPress is very buggy at the moment. Don’t know what’s going on. It tripled my follow up comments yesterday. I nearly had a heart attack.

    ‘Rose tinted lenses of love’ – very well put!


  6. A very true and thoughtful post Denise thank you and please hurry back..
    * About wordpress; Recently I was informed of a new glitch regarding comments. At the bottom of the comment section there is a small box that says notify me of follow-up comments by e-mail..Until recently you had to click that to get the comments, now unless you UN-CLICK you get all of the comments to that posting..So always unclick to prevent that.


  7. Ps. I just noticed your blog comment section doesn’t have that box????


  8. smiles…thre are few as special as a mother you know…i have seen situations where disdain would be so justified yet….


  9. Beautiful work…
