NaPoWriMo Day 3 The Wilding Mother / The Smothered Mother

The Wilding Mother

Full figured woman clasps her femininity
Inspires us all to us to create an affinity
With all that is wild and free in our nature
Chisel our paths like a slow-moving glacier
Creativity she inspires us to nurture
Compassion unearthed as we search for
The unconditional love she offers in abundance
She bowls us over despite our reluctance
Overwhelmed with her beauty
Protecting Gaia is our sacred duty

The Smothered Mother

Too little respect testifies our negligence
Profit over planet shows a lack of intelligence
Choking the earth until each field is barren
Too many hunters led to white heron
Greed is the cause of all this disharmony
We’ve pimped out the globe for cheap harlotry 
Pointing fingers is useless as is endless quarrel
As the fate of the world hangs over a barrel 
Disconnection and inaction are the difficulty
Mother lead us back to loving you unconditionally

Today's NaPoWriMo prompt asks us use of the resource for the day Rhymzone. First, make a list of ten words. You can generate this list however you’d like – pull a book  off the shelf and find ten words you like, name ten things you can see from where you’re sitting, etc. Now, for each word, use Rhymezone to identify two to four similar-sounding or rhyming words. For example, if my word is “salt,” my similar words might be “belt,” “silt,” “sailed,” and “sell-out.”

I used the Empress tarot card for inspiration looking at the key words associated with the card in upright and reversed positions. and tried to use true rhymes for the upright position and near rhymes for the reversed position.
