Extra time on my hands today : )

Haiku of a Homeschooler

---------------------

Pines in cool pale light

Mom and Dad and small ones doze
Sunday afternoon

----------------------

Red book edged in gold
Make my heart like unto Thine,
O most Sacred Heart.

----------------------

A crystal-eyed child,

Stuffed bears in war formation,
Boys are not like girls.

-------------------

Black tripartite form,
His thin limbs waving fiercely

Defending his queen.

---------------------

Bright dark eyes open
On bleached hospital pillow
My child, you are loved.
