My Tote

Sippy cup. Safely
Within Mom's reach. Just in case
I have a melt down.

(Which I certainly will...
I'm just sayin'!)


And now a definition: 

I've been asked what makes a haiku poem, well, a haiku poem. According to

haiku (plural haiku or haikus)

1. A Japanese poem of a specific form, consisting of three lines, the first and last consisting of five morae [syllables], and the second consisting of seven morae [syllables], usually with an emphasis on the season or a naturalistic theme.

2. A three-line poem in any language, with five syllables in the first and last lines and seven syllables in the second, usually with an emphasis on the season or a naturalistic theme.

Haiku, a poem
five beats, then seven, then five
ends as it began.


expect anything!
