Mother’s Day haiku

I entered these in a contest to win $1,000. The task was to write a haiku about your mom for Mother’s Day. I love my mom dearly, and it wasn’t hard to think of a way to honor her with my words.

1. “You can’t see the growth at first”
Like the rain that falls
On soil. Years later, the trees
Grow because of you.

2. “Help me find my way”
Sorrows, pains or tears–
You navigate with ease through
My complexities.

3. “I’m not embarassed to need you”
At twenty-two, I
Wonder if I’m too old to
Call. You say I’m not.

4. “I only have the good memories”
I remember when
You sang in the kitchen. I
Still know all the songs.
