Poetry Friday - Haiku for my family edition


hosted this week by whimsy

Watching my little boy eat crackers at Red Canoe
How finely he is
put together; tiny bones
surmounted by skin.

On my husband's birthday (a collaborative work)
Give him what he wants:
a six-pack and Matt Damon
movies (you pervert).

After school, after after-care, after playing, after more playing - a six year old's evening
Sweaty and wild-eyed,
you are so ready for bed.
Fumes rise off your head.
