Birthday Haiku for Elias's 4th

After March struggles

excitement around your Birthday

childhood memories

you run through tall grass

stop to pick up a few rocks

then stare at blue sky

take to your scrapes well

learn each lesson as you should

stumble through the world

I will stand sturdy

firm on ground as if I'm rock

you will know I'm here

as you fall to ground

to make an angel of mud

all this boyhood dirt

at night you will sit

still upon my cozy lap

to listen and sleep.

      What fun you obviously have with your son. A belated happy birthday to Elias! Children inspire us so much and grandchildren are great because we can do so much more now that we have the time.

      They run and play, learn something new everyday, yet in the evening they love to sit and be loved. This was beautiful!
