Birthday Haiku

She always has the best fashion sense...except for my bonnet!

It's my mom's birthday today! Happy Birthday to my greatest friend and role model. If you haven't met her yet, please click here...you are in for a treat. I always get sappy writing about Mom. Today I tried to keep it short and sweet.


Yes...birthday haiku! I have not written in this form since fifth grade...but if anyone will love me for trying, it's my mother. Here are three:



Mother's gentle hands.
Wiping tears, catching dreams, and
harvesting life's work.

Your light. Warm. Mellow.
Pure, not harsh. Inspires others
To shine brighter, too.

Fifty-eight is not

Too old to blog and laugh and

Drink an ice cold Coke!

Anyone who wants to post their own 5-7-5 syllable tribute to Oma...please do. Happy birthday, Mom! I love you!!
