A Mother Learns

4 Haiku

  • gossamer  touch,
    mother strokes her newborn–
    feathered beginnings

  • young buds awaken
    sleepy petals shake off dew
    silver mist of dawn

  • roots grow deep
    where we plant seeds of love
    becoming  evergreens

  • each arm a strong branch
    holds up against mighty storms–
    a mother’s instinct
