3 Looks at Birth

Life begins at birth

Held for the very first time

Hearts filled up with love

+

Song bird born in spring

Sings out to the cool morning

Happy for the fall

+

(A Halloween Haiku)

Born into darkness

Creature feasting on humans

Lusting for their blood

This song has been in my head all morning because of this prompt.

SELLING SIDEBAR

I know this has nothing to do with the post, but I just released “Joyride” back onto Kindle. I thought some of you out there might like to read it – especially any dads (or moms) reading this post.

joyride

(Revised and Updated: 2015) A Joyride in a Chevy Chevelle. The car was just sitting there for the taking. What could possibly go wrong? Vinnie and Mike are about to find out what can and will go wrong once they turn the key. Evil awaits. Ride shotgun if you dare with this short story.

Haiku – Proud

Sleeping through the night

Son in his big boy bed

First time, all night long

+

My son has just moved over to his big boy bed. One day the crib, next his big boy bed. Growing so fast. I thought I would share this news, because I am so proud of him. I don’t know if you have seen this blog or not, but I have started talking about being not only a parent, but a stay at home dad. You can check out that blog here: daddystayhome.wordpress.com

How did you parents reading this handle your child’s sleep transition? Just curious.

Also, my novel AWOL: A Character Lost is still running free today.

Imagine that you are a character in a story.

You have a home.

You have a life.

You have it all.

Then suddenly you wake up alone and afraid in a cold, dark place. Somehow you find your courage and your voice. When you ask for help, words light up on a wall in the darkness. You read them and realize you are in the creative center of your author’s mind. Instead of rescuing you, the author asks you for help.

This book is about the journey of that character, as he moves from story to story desperately trying to find his home.
