Seth Turns Nine

by Amy

Tomorrow, Seth will turn nine-years-old. I try to mark each child's birthday with a blog entry of some sort, sometimes lengthy, sometimes just a photo essay. This week, I felt inspired to write a haiku for Seth. He has been writing them in school this year and has really enjoyed their form and structure. I sat with it for some time, and I tried to pick the most accurately descriptive words about Seth at this point in time. Sometimes, fewer words say more than many.

Haiku for Seth on his 9th birthday

Strumming, blur of light -
Pioneering, hair cascades -
Satellite; home; reads.
