One Deep Breath - "Nurture"

A blue eyed smile
pillowed cheeks, wet kisses
nurtures heart and soul

A grandmother's
unconditional love
second chances

Grandson's smile
humming bird wings
tickle my heart.

The photo is TK, my grandson, at 17mos.

Loved looking around your place this morning--everything. What a dancer TK is! What a great little peek at you "shopping."

Have a good time looking around your new house!

"hummingbird wings tickle my heart" - it can't get much better than that, can it?

These are really lovely (and so is TK!)

I liked how you worked in second chances with respect to grandmotherhood, because mothers make mistakes no matter how hard they try. It gives me hope.

Fantastic poems. Your second one is so true. And your "pillowed cheeks" in the first haiku brings such a smile of agreement to me.
