Proud

the proudest moment
uttering a new word – clock
he’s not even two

Proud 2

My response to Carpe Diem #1794 New Beginnings: new born

Today’s challenge is to create haiku, tanka or other form of Japanese poetry on the theme of ‘new born’, and can be about new born babies, new kittens or even new-born language.

This one is for my mother, who died three years ago and didn’t get to meet her great grandson.
