11.12 …restitution…

chill of sadness
waking up disoriented
child’s cry trills

gone the warmth
of the day – cold, wet
tears freeze

frown stays down
too long – demanding
restitution

The fury of four
years fumes, unfair!
wants equalling needs

child’s cry trills
daylight gone, winter wakes
chill of sadness

restitution noun: 3. restoration to the former or original state or position.

CD GW 33 Richard Wright

For this Ghost-Writer episode we’re going to revisit Richard Wright (1908-1960). Chèvrefeuille featured his haiku several weeks ago in an episode of “Little Creatures”. (You can re-read his post here.)

  1. Love the way “child’s cry trills” is both the beginning and ending of this story — ah, that piercing trill — makes the hair on the back of your neck stand on end!!!

      I just needed him to see that a tantrum wasn’t going to get him what he wanted. At least at my house.
      Grandparenting…’sposed to be fun.
      Most of the time it is. 🙂
