Freestyle Haiku Wednesday

new badge!
Today for Sensational Haiku Wednesday, we got to choose our own topic - I didn't know what to do! I can't think for myself! I need prompts! So I asked my youngest son. He said to "write about family, not our family, just family" Awww. He's so cute! So I did =)

Family Treasure

Family haven
Safe from harsh worldly judgments
Free to be yourself

Hugs and kisses
Don't hold back from showing love
Supply and demand

Cuddle with loved ones
On a regular basis
Face the world recharged

my inspiration!

That's cute. And so true.

I've never written a Haiku before. They seem hard to do.
