Haiku – Mom – The True Rock Star

Robbed these two from myself. Not a lot of time to write something for mom this year, but I didn’t want to let the day go by without giving all moms a nod. I’m a stay at home dad and I see first hand how awesome moms are. They are true rock stars. Happy Mother’s Day to all moms out there.


Love, safety, comfort

In the caring arms of mom

All you ever need


How to describe a mom,


it may be too hard to do,

without leaving out,

too many things,

that are true.

For a mom is a blessing,

a true gift from God,

her patience and virtue,

is something,

you could never prod?


3 Looks at Birth

Life begins at birth

Held for the very first time

Hearts filled up with love


Song bird born in spring

Sings out to the cool morning

Happy for the fall


(A Halloween Haiku)

Born into darkness

Creature feasting on humans

Lusting for their blood

This song has been in my head all morning because of this prompt.

Haiku – Tender Touch

Maintain your patience

Teaching your children through life

Takes a parent’s love

I know this has nothing to do with the post, but I just released “Joyride” back onto Kindle. I thought some of you out there might like to read it – especially any dads (or moms) reading this post.


(Revised and Updated: 2015) A Joyride in a Chevy Chevelle. The car was just sitting there for the taking. What could possibly go wrong? Vinnie and Mike are about to find out what can and will go wrong once they turn the key. Evil awaits. Ride shotgun if you dare with this short story.

Haiku – Proud

Sleeping through the night

Son in his big boy bed

First time, all night long


My son has just moved over to his big boy bed. One day the crib, next his big boy bed. Growing so fast. I thought I would share this news, because I am so proud of him. I don’t know if you have seen this blog or not, but I have started talking about being not only a parent, but a stay at home dad. You can check out that blog here: daddystayhome.wordpress.com

How did you parents reading this handle your child’s sleep transition? Just curious.
