Elias's Third Birthday Haiku

The toddler in us

freed with every tender laugh

joy in the country

singing his own tune

as loud as he can sing

by keyhole garden

with each planted tree

a memory of every child

on their day, this day

at this age of three

the wind can blow you over

your roots are settled

when you sleep you dream

of the yard full of your friends

the wet April soil

I cannot believe Foot-foot is already three. Where does the time go? Great poems. A wonderful way to mark those important milestones. Best wishes to Elias on his special day.
