Picture on the fridge
Hands knotted to make a heart
‘K’ is for ‘Kisses’

Drawing big circles
Reaching across the table
Record of arm span

At the kitchen sink
Reminded of my blessings
Grateful soapy hands

Haikus #9, #10 & #11

We hear the trash truck
Race to the door in one boot
Nose smooshed on the glass

Train tracks line the house
Run invisibly throughout
No contour is safe

Racing up my arm
Small wheels roll across my back
Mommy Autobahn

Haikus #7 & #8


The sun makes a friend
A shadow discovery
Found beneath flat feet


A happy cat face
Drawn with chalk for someone else
Left behind for us

Haikus #5 & #6


One hundred days old
One thousand diaper changes
One million kisses


Wearing a hard hat
Holding the banana high
Somehow it makes sense

Appropriate Facebook Recommendation

One sort of leads to the other, don't you think? This is just one reason artistic pursuits are tough these days. Thanks for rubbing it in, Facebook.

The one recognize
The illusion does not act
As if it is real

Haiku #3

Haiku #2

My toddler caveboy
Drawing dinosaurs on walls
Hunting robot trains

Haiku #1

My short shadow
Has the feet of a caveboy
They’re flat & dirty
