Haiku: Resolve

This is for the "resolve" prompt at One Single Impression this week - be sure to stop by there to see all the wonderful poetry! I have always loved writing poetry, so I decided to do this haiku writing exercise each week. I hope ya'll enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them!

Clean slate, a new year;
Possibilities abound.
Back to school they go.

Yes, it was back to school today, and as I sent them off to their first years of high school and junior high, I could not help but remember back to the days I sent each of them off to their first day of Kindergarten. How they have grown since then (and so have I - today I didn't cry)!









Today's a new start.
Spread your young wings and resolve
to always soar high.

Oh happy day! I think it's wonderful how you put this all together! Your children are beautiful. I love your take on resolve, and how you share/teach your own resolve with your kids. Kudos to you!

What wonderful photos. They look like great kids. I especially like your second haiku. Helps to have a parent who is willing to be the wind of love and vision under those young wings.

It's great that you're joining in, and starting off with such a bang, you damn overachiever. The photos are divine. So are the 'ku.

Going on day 3, and our daughter's schedule at Lake is still not changed. We notified them of this over the summer, the Friday before school started, and again today.

Bubba's Sis said...

Forgetfulone, I'm headed up there to talk to the counselor tomorrow. This is getting ridiculous!

Jennie said...

Awwww, they are so cute!

Misty Dawn said...
