I haven’t written a poem since I was in elementary school.
But today I wrote tw0- not one, but TWO! – haikus in response to the WordPress Weekly Writing Challenge.
My eight year old daughter was the inspiration for the first.
Cleaning her backpack,
I found …my daughter’s wise words,
Scrawled in the margins.
She was also the inspiration for the second haiku of the day:
To My Daughter, Who Is 8
Eight years old, full of
Joy and bold discovery.
Stay this kind and strong!
Next up – my daughter writes her very first haiku! Haikus With My Daughter II

Thank you! We’re on a roll – more to come!
Love it! My 9 year old loves Haikus too. I had so much fun with this challenge too. Great job!
Thanks! Your haikus were totally great! Definitely a fun challenge, but now I can’t stop thinking in 5-7-5…
Thanks! I know….it sort of sets a tone for the whole week.
