Mother’s Day Challenge #5

How do you love your mama? Let us haiku the ways.

You know the haiku form, right? A three line poem that goes a little something like this:
first line has five beats
second line has seven
last has five again

Your challenge? Right a sweet/ funny haiku about your mom, or mama, or medea, or mommy…

Here’s one I wrote about my sweet mama:

              Ruth
though her voice is soft…
hands are manicured weekly…
inside she is wild.

To receive a lottery ticket to be entered in the drawing, email your mama-inspired haiku to me at susanrebeccawhite@gmail.com.  Extra points go to folks who also publish their haikus in the comment section of this post.

    Challenges cheaters,
    and reassures scared gay teens,
    she mends lives, my mom.

    haiku 2

    Susan does not bake /
    Why should she when sis and Ruth /
    melt chocolate for her?

    Mom

    Brown hair down her back
    Purses all over her floor
    She is a great mom
