SWEET SWEET OCTOBER
There there, i see you, afro-haloed;
it is the month of October,
i garland your neck with
imaginary kisses, futuristic whimsies;
later though, we do kiss.

There there, i see a sky, chock full of clouds,
In the afternoon traffic,
Ah! i say to our boy (though a man now),
The angels, surely are rejoicing,

swaddled new baby -
the flashing of cell phone clicks
and granma kisses

  2. Regardless of how far into autumn a boy's life reaches, for his mama he'll always be a baby. Such tenderness, Gillena.

    2. What a lovely image, Gillena:
      'There there, i see you, afro-haloed'.
      And what a joy to have a grandchild - I have my fingers crossed for one at the moment!

    Contrary to common beliefs a boy gets a lot of pointers from the mother who usually is closer to him than to the fsther

  13. Hi Anne, thanks for dropping by. I have to date still one grandchild my Grand daughter Zuri was four on October 18th

    The form of this poetic writing is Haibun: text and haiku combined to make the entire poem.
    Traditional haibun are written in the present tense, even when the content is about happenings in the past.

    Happy i sparked your interest

    much love...
