A parent grows up

#Haiku Happenings #1 (11/25/17): Reena Saxena’s latest #haibun!

Reena Saxena

I watched my child grow bolder, as he tackled small challenges in life. He could walk a few steps without support, and then hold a glass in his tiny, but steady fingers.

I see him pushing the boulder up the hill, and my heart goes out to him. But he has grown up now, and trying to salvage a relationship going downhill. He flew out of the nest, five years ago, and life has never been the same again.

I saw his ambitions move through the flue, into the blue, expansive sky outside. I had outlived my utility.

birds will fly away

to claim their pie in the sky

just watch with pride
