A Bit Taller #haiku


The prompt from Carpe Diem’s Haiku Kai — Here is the haiku by Michael Dylan Welch to inspire you to write an all new haiku, tanka or another Japanese poetry form:

pull of tonight’s moon—
the harbor lighthouse
a little taller

Big boy

.

My son when he was a little guy always loved to slip on big shoes.

His head was full of imaginings about when he’d be big.

He never tripped when he wore too big shoes.

My artist mother captured him one day as he was raking the yard.

In a series of drawings (this being one), my son managed to keep my shoes on while chasing the dog.
