I was looking at some other Blogathon Haiku entries and I came across the blog by Donna Bumgarner .  She is a very creative and talented blogger, I only hope to achieve as much with this blog as she has with her own. On her blog she had written several Haiku; they were all on the theme of family and quite fun to read.  In middle school we have a course on Haiku, not the most fun for me; I struggled with it greatly and my Haiku were slim, wordless, think here bloodless, lifeless, little things.  So when the Blogathon challenge was Haiku I thought: Great!  I was going to write some flippant response but the first Haiku struggled to be born.

While visiting Donna’s site the second haiku needed to come out:

Spirit Moms seek God

Moms seek God in all they do

God is love Mom loves

Our beautiful Twinnie Daughters

The experience of these Haiku reminded me of the twins.  My hubby and I were only going to try for one more, but both girls were born.  It made me wonder if God, who holds all little souls in his pocket before they are born, could hear both girls asking to come into the world; that both girls had something significant to give and needed to be born!

God’s huge pocket

many little souls waiting there

come to Earth baby
