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!!
