RonovanWrites Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt Challenge #51 Future&Give

My haiku this week are inspired by the birth of a baby girl, the granddaughter of a friend of mine. The prompt words future and give just seem to be such a perfect choice this week. A baby is such a hopeful start, a promise of future, a gift giving joy to family, and friends.

Of course I’ve had two baby girls too, many, many years ago, but those early days with a new born are still such precious memories. My first child Natasha was born early, as if she was impatient to join us, desperate to discover all there was to know about the world. She was born two weeks early on Christmas day, on the very day that I was supposed to have my Christmas dinner with friends! This was to be the first of many small sacrifices that I was to make as a parent. I wonder if being born early or late has any bearing on the person we become? Does it shape our character in some way? I think it possibly does. My youngest daughter Georgina was born exactly on her due date. The midwife said, “You’ll have no trouble with this one.” In some ways it was true baby Georgina was a very good baby, Baby Natasha was a handful! In fact the staff at the nursery that Natasha went to said that she was like a whirlwind!  Yes, a whirlwind, a delightful one, or at least that’s what I thought! What about Georgina? My baby angel!  In fact that early quiet start should have been a warning: A Calm Before The Teenage Storm! Both of my girls have had their whirlwind moments possibly at different times in their development, but that’s what makes them who they are, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

About Marje @ Kyrosmagica

Hi. Welcome to my blog, Kyrosmagica. A blog about magic, books, writing, laughter, and much more! I'm a debut writer in the process of finishing my first YA fantasy novel, set in Cambridge. I write book reviews on Net Galley and Goodreads. I have a penchant for travel and have relatives in far flung places, Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore, (my birthplace.) I grew up in in Bonnie Scotland, in Edinburgh, and now live in Cambridge. I love sunny, hot places, particularly Rome, Venice, Portugal, Barcelona, and I forgot to mention the sun drenched beaches of the Caribbean, how could I? I am lucky to have been blessed with two lovely daughters and a husband who I fondly refer to in this blog as my black sheep. Family joke! With my passion for travel, culture, beautiful beaches, good food, books, theatre, writing, and humour, I hope to keep you entertained. I'm loving every minute of this creative journey, please join me.
