parents as first teachers

 

Kids deserve the freedom toimages

Learn from real life’s teachable

Moments which are often caught

Not taught in typical schools but 

Observed in (extra)ordinary daily

Pursuits at home with their parents.

 


I remember one of my sons sincerely reciting:  “A,B,C,D,E,F,G…H,I,J,K, Elmo pee” !  Linking this sestet to dVerse  where Lillian holds class 🙂

his & her harleys

 

teen-age male on 

testosterone

in search of new 

thrills-on-wheels

dreams of motorcycle;

engine roar combines

with speed’s blur…

wind-in-face freedom.

middle-age parents

experience concern,

envision fragile-ness 

of life-and-limb;

postpone possibility

until son leaves family nest…

 


Forty-four word quadrille for “cycle” prompt at dVerse Poets this week…

reprieve

CDHK’s prompt from Jane Reichhold’s “Dictionary of Haiku”:  peace

 

longest hour of day

crying baby falls asleep

parents enjoy peace
