My original Haikus (unless otherwise noted), inspired by the age of 3.5

Written in the English format of 5 / 7 / 5

There’s a book idea in here somewhere. Maybe ironic poetry for a day-planner, or something. Enjoy!

But I don’t want to!
But I want one more minute!
The child says daily.


I want to be a
Good listener but forgot
How to use my ears.


I’ll exert my will
On you Mama and Daddy
Slowly break you down.


How many gallons
of Henry’s tears will it take
before Mamma rests?

By Dr. Christine Shields
