newborn child ~ senryū

#Haiku Happenings #2: Ken Gierke’s latest #senryu!


newborn child

newborn child
love overflowing
from cupped hands

This senryū is my response to
Misky’s Twiglet #229 – cupped hands.

I’m also sharing this with Colleen’s #Tanka Tuesday Weekly
#Poetry Challenge No. 228 #Poet’sChoice.

My granddaughter was three days old the first time I held her.
The next time I hold her will be in July, when she will be eight months old.
