Baby Haikus

My baby boy is 3 weeks old today.  Those late night nursing sessions over the past few weeks prompted me to write these haikus. (5, 7, 5 syllables)

Mama Haiku  - April 20, 2010
Night is day and day is night.
Why is sleep so elusive?
Baby eats again.

Baby Haiku  - April 21, 2010
Mama, feed me now.
Or I shall wake up this house
with my loud wailing.

Mama Haiku  - April 22, 2010
Cold wipes on bottom.
Makes for a screaming baby.
I should know better.

Baby Haiku  - April 24, 2010
Mama, it's hard work
Trying to grow every day.
Have patience with me.

Baby Haiku  - May 6, 2010
Sometimes I may cry
for reasons I don't yet know.
What else can I tell you?
