Fourteen



Like a classic car,
or old school stuff
that never goes out of style,

like when people say, in admiration,
“they just don’t make ‘em like that anymore”

you

make me grin
and say to myself,

yes, they do.

An instant classic.   
I know, I know, spoken like a Mom.  But what can I say?  I adore the kid.  He celebrated his 14th birthday this weekend.

  3. Awe. I feel my son is a "throw back" an "old soul" and yes, I am biased. Wonderful poem - I always admire your creative poetic flare.

  4. Charming and sweet, Jennifer. I can feel the love. Clearly, you have got his back – and at fourteen (or any age, really) that’s the very best place for Mom to be.
