Haiku Heights – Lullabye

Baby

Something must  stop me

From worrying and crying

Darkness, a sad song

*******************************************************************************

Many years ago

I would sing to my children

To soothe them at night

*******************************************************************************

Soft lush tones whispered

Sometimes we are all children

Happy for a lie

********************************************************************************

My mom sang to me

In a soft foreign language

My eyes fluttered shut

********************************************************************************

  1. Laurie, I always love your Haikus. I especially love the last one about your Mom singing. It conjures up a beautiful picture in my imagination.
