My week in haiku – 8/27

Drive to the dentist
And coax my kid’s mouth open
To look at her teeth

Walk in the hot sun
To play at an awesome park
Water’s gone — head home

The sound of water
Flowing over many rocks
This river smells weird

A yellow jacket
It came to investigate
We fled in terror

Raiding the grapevine
They aren’t remotely ripe yet
Sour through and through


My week in haiku – 8/20

A crash and a cry
My child slipped on the stairs
And scraped her elbow


The life of a mom
Is chock-full of sleepless nights
I’m so exhausted


Biscuits n gravy
A delicious breakfast here
Fresh from the freezer 🙂


Soft white corriedale
Spinning wool into some yarn
On a drop spindle


Tiny sweet meows
With many sharp little claws
Kittens are abound


My week in haiku

The endless echo
Of lightning tearing the sky
Wondrous thunderstorm

Brilliant yellow
Filling the air around me
A sunset sublime

The prettiest smile
Fills my heart with endless love
On the smallest face

My dearest baby
I love you so very much
Please let me sleep more

Swimming every day
Keeps me so healthy and strong
The water feels great
