Haiku

My wife, Alison, on haiku:

Haiku is, I think,
The original tweeting.
Clever, short, and sweet!

My sister-in-law, Jill, texted me a haiku after our summer vacation. I enjoyed it so much, I sent her one back. Now, I’m totally hooked. Below is a collection of haikus that I have written about my life as a stay-at-home dad. Enjoy the simple delight of the 5-7-5, perfect for Micro.blog.
