A Mother's Resolve..




Written for Rebecca's

Haiku My Heart : Friday




And for Leo's
Haiku Heights : Saturday
 
 Fortitude

and for
Sandy and Andree's
One Single Impression -Sunday

Moment
 

A Mother's Resolve..
 
 
Ah, fortitude;
she goes through all the troubles
unscathed, strong
 
Unscathed, strong;
testing moments deter not
a mother's resolve
 
A mother's resolve
to give her best to children;
ah, fortitude

***

Unprompted..spontaneous..

Sun shines bright
on top of my head;
shadow shrinks

Shadow shrinks
just under my feet;
I look down

I look down
and lo, my shadow
too looks back

  3. I think I would be more than a little startled to see my shadow staring back at me!

  4. I simply run out of adjectives when I talk about a mother's love. You portrayed the thought very well, Sir! :)

    And, in the second haiku-set...
    "I look down
    and lo, my shadow
    too looks back" was brilliant. It made me chuckle. :D

  11. Two lovely haiku chains. Yes, we must be strong to be parents. And I love the idea of my shadow looking back up at me!

  13. I picture you walking in the sun in a dusty, India-street (Yes, I've visited your country - ages ago). Wonderful haiku Ramesh!
