Weekly Writing Challenge: Haiku – Reunions

So leave it to me to misread the definition of Haiku. It isn’t 17 words but 17 syllables. Sigh. I knew there was a reason poetry and I don’t get along. I think I got it right this time.


Going home with joy

Welcome hugs, laughter, chatter

Leaving home with tears

Oops. Not Haiku I guess but I like it.

Anticipation, arrival, excitement, smiles, hugs 

Laughter, chatter, stories, cameras, airbeds, whispers, breathing 

Tears, departure, missing them already
