Daily Moments April 14/16 ~ Leaves (haiku)

I wrote this as an extra L is for Leave and interestingly, there are many meanings…

totally absorbed
child twirls his shoelaces
shouts “leave me alone”

shouts “leave me alone”
trying for the third time
sighing – mommy smiles


mix of leaves
gold, amber and red
carpets the front lawn


GrandMaman squints
shoulders hunched over
reading my tea leaves

reading my tea leaves
heart glows with hope
promise of a child

promise of a child
reality blossoms one day
takes a leave of absence

takes a leave of absence
unknown return to work date
savouring her new role
