Haiku Friday...

Haiku Friday

Some Haiku’s surrounding the issue of parenting...

Young ears hear nothing
from the mouths of their mothers
We speak in whispers.

Stay at home mother
full time work plus overtime
salary: kisses

Give me no diamonds
sticky handprints and kisses
are enough for me.

Whomever said song
soothes the savage breast of man
had no singing child.

No baby! Not that!
is the mantra of our days
as he learns to crawl.

“Digging in your heels”
Is a phrase inspired by
children and dachsunds.
