A Week End for Words..

"A baby is born with a need to be loved - and never outgrows it."
~ Frank Howard Clark

"A baby is God's opinion that life should go on."
~ Carl Sandburg

"A baby changes your dinner party conversation from politics to poops."
~ Maurice Johnstone

=======================

~ Weekend Wordsmith is a blog spot.. for those of us who would be writers.. to pick up the Prompt of the Week as a challenge to write-write-write! If the word prompt tickles our fancy... we are asked to write about it on our own blog and then post a link to it in a comment on the Wordsmith blog.. others who visit there will then visit you and read your words.. The word of this week-end is Baby~

My parents had a lot of babies of their own and then took care of a million more that belonged to other people.. both in day care and in foster care.. .. the one MY Mom carries in this photo is me!

The word Baby did indeed tickle my fancy and I have posted three of the Haiku I wrote while thinking about babies.. Thanks for stopping by my blog today.. I hope you enjoy my words.. Have a wonderful Day!

Baby

tiniest nestling
bringing thunder to my heart~
must you poop again?

Time for a Change

messy at midnight
wails call me from sandman's realm~
I welcome the change

The Old Chair

reflections of joy
beckon my heart gently home~
pure love rests rocking
