Cast-Off Haiku

The Yarn Harlot asked readers to leave a comment with a haiku about casting-off in order to have a chance to win a book. Here's mine:

Such a joy to end
But bittersweet to finish
I cast-off again

I forgot how fun to write they are. In our homeschooling plans this week: Haikus.

Does it continue
This complaining without end?
He'll move out one day

Baby at my breast
Smiling, cooing at me
Blessings at their best

Children in my bed
We cram in here together
A foot in my face

Not even my kid
Is the one whose cries I hear
Milk let's down again

I could go on and
On with these little poems
But I will stop now
