Mother’s Day Haiku poetry.

Since it is Mother’s day in some parts of the world, I decided to dedicate this blog post to mothers everywhere. ย I myself am a mother, to a beautiful and perfect baby girl, and I now know just how much I owe my own mum. ย It is the hardest job I have ever done, and the most rewarding. ย I have never been more frustrated or happy, all rolled into one ball of emotions, and I am thankful every day to have been blessed with my daughter.

I also wanted to do something a bit different, so instead of a short story, I thought I would try to write some haiku poetry for the first time. ย For those of you unfamiliar with a haiku, originating from Japan, it is a three line poem which consists of five syllables, seven syllables and then five syllables again. ย It sounds short and easy, but it’s harder than you think.

I decided to write one haiku as a mother and a second as a daughter. ย Let me know what you think, and Happy Mother’s Day to all the mums out there! ย If you feel inspired to write your own haikus then please post them in the comments section below.

I hold her closer,

Tiny hand wrapped round my thumb.

I am truly whole.

I hope I’m like her.

Strong, kind smart and loving.

My hero, my mum.
