sleeping beauty

you sleep so sweetly
in the warm afternoon sun
what do you dream of?

 

NaPoWriMo Day 22! I guess I’m in haiku mode. I wrote this and then realized it was a haiku afterwards. Now I’m afraid I must wake the sleeping beauty or she will not want to go to bed at the appropriate bedtime.

I feel up to the challenge of writing one poem a day for the next 30 days – without the expectation that any of them be good poems. I thought I would kick off NaPoWriMo with some zoo haikus. Baby Bear and I have been enjoying our visits to the zoo, thanks to the zoo membership that Grandma Silly bought for us. Baby Bear has decided that “roar” is an important part of her vocabulary.

Friday at the zoo
Marie saw lions and roared
my darling wild thing
