Haiku Friday

Haiku Friday
More haiku poetry can be found at the fabulous Mommystory’s blog or the wonderful Jennifer’s blog

family park day
a walk through the neighborhood
to the mini park

up and down the slides
crawling up through everything
up and down and back

watch out dad I’m here
coming for you, oops I fell
Dad kiss, all better

Pick me up Daddy
help me do the monkey bars
mom stands back and clicks

Monkey laughs and laughs
days like this, precious moments
record them, treasure them

soon they will be grown
mom and dad will be burdens
instead of playmates

spread your wings and fly
we will catch you if you fall
kiss away the hurt

set you on your path
stand behind you when you go
you, two dreams come true
