Feeding Interests
(OctaTimbre in syllables)

Sometimes when trading books – you get
Lucky and get something that is
A keeper, maybe not for you
But for someone else – at the train
Station’s You Trade Em book box
A treasure …buried deep under
Some religious ‘tracts’ was a book
About a sunken ship namely
The Titanic that I know will
Entertain Son of Son for hours!

A Day Full of ‘Son of Son’
(OctaTimbre in syllables)

Will it float or will it sink… boats
Made from Lego bricks, some listed
The young scientist needs to know
Especially what will happen
To his build of the Titanic!
After lunch plans to visit the
Library to buy and borrow,
A stop at a neighborhood park
First, then a drive by to the bank
That’s how we spent most of the day

Play Right
(Shadorma, Septolet, pi ku)

Son of Son
Found some of Dad’s toy
Building bricks
Interlock –
Making boats, planes and other
Things he imagines
~
A short break
To refuel

And to
Color some
Pages
And a
Postal card
~
first autumn
day –
free from schedules

The Write Words
(Shadorma, pi ku, Cherita)

Little Miss
Has a Grama day –
Jam packed full;
Walk, play, lunch,
Snacks, making booklets, games, and
Filling the feeder

a little
nap
gives Gram a rest

Some days teachers need off too

To recharge and rewrite lessons
For those in their care –

Different schools have different days
So, while Little Miss was here today –
Son of Son’s turn is on Friday

Spring Summery

Last day of First Grade
For Son of Son –
Just days after his
Seventh birthday…

I picked him up so he could play
For some part of the afternoon
With Little Miss – For the most
Part they do play nicely together

Within Son of Son’s book bag
Was a booklet he had made – of his poetry
An acrostic of his name and one with Mommy
In the Middle and of course others about trucks

I think I’ll teach him about Efjie poems
Tomorrow – since both he and ‘sissy’ will be
Spending another long day here before they
Officially start their summer vacation with Mom.

Teacher planning day
Leaves Son of Son with Grama
For a fun Friday

Springing toy trucks on mat
Of alphabet letters; bounce!

Over and under
The couch, around tissue box
Blockades; racers zoom

Just Karma 195
Grand ‘Son’
(haibun)

Just how busy can a six year old keep you? Train tracks have trains traveling
a maze of wooden trails, some leading to another group of toys set up as a
stop on the town…taking up all the square footage of the room.

We get derailed out into nature to visit two different parks; Climbing rocks,
scampering over bridges, sliding and hiding in tubes and tunnels before
escaping the heat into the library.

The silo room is filled with building toys, a different train; another country of
building blocks for imaginative play – We borrow some videos for perhaps a
quiet time after stopping at the library cafe store for a snack and books!

Once back home lunch is but a refueling station, milked for all it is worth;
Grama breathes while the video entertains the child who will rest, but not nap.

There is a request for macaroni cargo for the trains to haul, after a brief look
at the huge spider web found outside…Daddy arrives and Son of Son does
not want to leave – It’s the first time in a long time he’s had Grama all to himself
without Little Miss joining them. Ever the negotiator Son of Son pleads for a
repeat of the day…tomorrow…

grandchildren; blessings
change the scheduled plans of peace –
brightening our daze
