Haiku for Hannah's 6th Birthday

Updated on April 8, 2017
Hannah as an Astronaut...
Hannah as an Astronaut... | Source

I have watched you grow

amazed at your yearly sprout

stand tall from the ground

old and beautiful

this journey into girlhood

I am blessed to watch

as your candles blow

to flicker and rise as smoke

wafting by your smile

said in one sentence

"Always know your beautiful,

never give up grace."

On this year the young

move their thoughts to more social

learning with the grove

I will cast shadow

the shade of the older tree

to let your soul grow.

      Great Haiku! I hope and pray that she always remains a joy of your life. Well, from my experience, daughters do become distracted in their teens, but return to the light after that period LOL.
