two year old 
starting pennies
from seed

—Nancy Smith
        

About the author: Born and raised in the USA, I have been writing and publishing haiku since the early 70ís. My work has appear in in many periodicals including Dragonfly, Tightrope, Brussels Sprouts, Frogpond, Haiku Harvest, Modern Haiku , Heronís Nest, World Haiku Review, WorldWall, Simply Haiku, Poets Market, and the occasional anthology. Sometimes it has won prizes though contests were entered more by accident than otherwise.

    shore side flower bed
    little hands pick a bouquet--
    vines cover--do not pick

    she paints with flowers
    a token of daughters love--
    butterfly haven

    of cholesterol in an egg?

    Asked how old he was,
    the boy in the new kimono
    stretched out all five fingers

    morning jog -
    kids walk to the door
    arms raised, to toss him in the air

    to walk, no more
    staring at the clouds
    he spreads his wings

    So this is another two year old? Not the one from Oz? ;-)

    I absolutely adore the haiku, can't imagine how I didn't comment on it before.
