Monday evening means it’s  Ron’s haiku challenge! Read more here.

Great words this week – Child & Star. I started with a little humour, but the words touched me in a personal way, paving the path for the second haiku…

 

TLC

Honey Boo Boo!

Reality

Reality stars

Nothing more than hyped up and

Celebrated brats

Ritu 2016

And one a little more emotionally deep… means something to me…

baby-someone-i-loved-was-never-born

For my 2 stars, twinkling in the sky…

Forever Stars

Farewell my cherubs

Gone too soon but with me still

Two more stars twinkle

Ritu 2016

But I Smile Anyway...

    The second one is very touching and, obviously, my favorite of the two. (I can’t stand the “reality stars”, no matter how old πŸ˜‰ )

    Great haiku! I completely agree with ‘Reality’. I hate that show and others like it. What’s the point? The 2nd haiku is very heartfelt and touching. ❀

    I would wear three like buds on a tree
    But their love shines through
    The happier I am the happier they’ll be
    My tiny pieces of unborn me.
    πŸ˜‡ Thank you. You woke my heart.
