Haiku Tuesday- Childhood

by Christine@TheAums on May 17, 2011 · 10 comments

Childhood, I miss you

But I’m giving you to them
Hoping you stay long.

This post was inspired by Mama Knows It All and her Tuesday Haiku Link-up. 
Give it a try…it’s only 17 syllables!

Oh my goodness…this one made me cry! Gosh, I think about this everyday with Ayva. I want to make sure her childhood is full of dirt and discovery, and although it goes so fast, I'm cherishing each day!!

This one tugs at my heart too! Dirt and Discovery…I like that!

love this haiku. Also, love the picture with the water in motion.

Thank you (keikikreations…is that you lisa?)! Isn't that water splash neat? I guess I should be giving my husband some photo credits!

Ahhh…the sweet simple joys of childhood. So much to discover.


The Aums Mama May 18, 2011 at 7:18 am

@Jessica, it's so fun to experience and re-experience that joy with the kids! These pictures show my kids trying to capture tadpoles and frogs which I never did as a kid, so it was fun to discover right along with them. They keep me young at the same time they give me grey hairs!

wow….what a powerful us of a haiku! It did make me teary….


The Aums Mama May 19, 2011 at 9:12 pm

Aww, I know what you mean Heidi…I'm thinking of printing this one out as a reminder on those tough days!
