these haiku are great. the second one made me realize I would love my grandchild before she/ he was born too. I look forward to meeting her/ him. have a great night.

Hi Sue, within three weeks we may become new grandparents again. I hadn't thought of it before but [??????] is already loved by us all.
Especially her big-12-year-old sister. You should read the tribute she wrote to her new sis/brother.
And now you're into the sticky blooms. I can see them even without your fine picture.

Your haiku are always so full of emotion. So much vividness packed into so few words. Wonderful.

Pearl said...

with the picture works sweetly. like the humour of it.

what if it were "Scotch wild rose" to make a play with resolving into scotch thistle at the end.

Beautiful. This child is no stranger. a rose that makes its bed blindly climbing into your heart.

Sweet. I particularly love the first one.
