Three Haiku Poems

Snowflakes like fairies
from a fissure in heaven
a fun flotilla

A daughter will fly
each generation is more
she is more than me

A son makes you smile
because now he is a man
his voice brings new joy

Lovely. Do you share these with your children?

If I don't get a chance to say it later, have a happy Thanksgiving.

That final stanza hit me with special force, given that I'm marveling over my two college-age sons as they come home for the holidays for the first time. My pride in them swells my chest so that I can barely breathe at certain moments.

That last Haiku made me stop to comment, too. My son turns 13 in two days, and I just can't express the love and pride I have for him. I love to see him turning into a kind-hearted, thougtful, young man.

Great poetry!
