A series of Haiku for my small son, as he grows:

One, two, yellow, blue
is how you counted before
you knew there were rules.


Willows are fluffing
and you wonder aloud if
the sky has dandruff.


Oh, dandelion.
How fearsome you are with your
sunny, yellow mane.


I couldn’t call you
a shrinking violet. You are
a johnny jump-up.
