Haiku Horizons: Open

Eyes squinting,

squirms with disquiet

howls in concert.


wrapped in mother’s arms

nestles to her breast

mouth opens.

    1. I do too, the first was just working up to that one:) Thanks for reading. I’m late in responding as your comment went to my spam file…oooops…WP does that sometimes.


  1. Sometimes just holding that small one – as a grandmother I get to do that again… sleeping children to me seem lighter. Perhaps when they are relaxed so are we?

    FYI: With ‘B’ I review all comments – so If it is OK with you I’ll only post the one as I figured out you basically tried the same thing twice. (via Ntouch)
