Haiku Friday

Baby snuggled close
snoring puffs of hot sweet breath
over my shoulder.

Motherhood rewards
me with delicate moments
spun like spiderwebs.

Catch them when you can
the magic minutes finding
calm between the storms.

Haiku Friday

Travel with children,
The crying, boredom and tears,
requires tequila.

We left with four hours
plenty of time to get to
the flight to Cali.

Monkey complained of
a painful crick in her neck
crying the whole ride.

We got stuck halfway
twixt Jersey and vacation
I hate construction.

Two hours ’til take off
We can make it, no worries
“Mom? I don’t feel good.”

An hour thirty-ish
Still on the bridge not moving
bag under her mouth.

Calling airline fast
can they fly us out later
We aren’t even close.

Horking in the back
as my daughter adds her own
spice to the journey.

Breakthrough on freeway!
We violate physics laws
as we race the clock.

Check in goes quickly
everyone is late today
stupid construction.

Through security
onto the plane just in time
pant never again.

Five days in Cali
Time on the beach with our friends
Totally worth it.

Haiku Friday…

I’m down in the dumps
feeling sad and very blue
once more far from home.

First Dad brought sunshine
some hugs and conversations
added to my days.

After Dad came Mom
bringing with her warmth and love
simply together.

Two weeks with my folks,
making me feel at home here
in far far away.

Games with the kiddos
laughter and family fun
days spent reveling.

Now it’s a quiet house
just baby and me again
a normal morning.

I’m feeling adrift
in my not so fairy tale
far far far away.

Morning comes early
three, four, five, five-ten a.m.
sleep baby please sleep.

Bleary mommy naps
wrapped under a sweatshirt
on the comfy couch.

Happy baby laughs
swatting mommy with his hand.
Wake up mommy, smack!

Five is too early
Sleep baby, please let me sleep.
Smack please baby, smack.
