Tiffany posted a writing prompt on her blog. She challenged readers to write a haiku about shiny things. My initial thought was to write about my children's eyes, which sparkle and shine, but I strayed a bit from the shiny part. Here are my pitiful little attempts.

Their eyes shine with pride
A goal they worked hard to reach
Blue belts for my boys

Tears are real this time
She pleads with Mommy to stay
It’s scary in the dark

She lights up a room
And finds true joy in learning
Growing up so fast

Full of energy
With my grandma’s eyes… and strength
Innocence and joy

They keep me awake
Make me laugh and cry, and
Teach me about love

Now it's your turn!

Those are great! I especially like the second one.

The Mr. Linky kind of works. I did get to your blog from it, but there is a better way to use it - I just don't know what it is yet! I'm learning.

Thanks for playing along. Those are great peoms for your kids. don't you think they capture those small things that we usually let pass us by?
