sleep deprivation
causes really bad haiku
words not come out good


jackhammers in my basement
the buzz of progress

pouring lemonade
on your brother’s head because
he did not say no

wonderful friday
through the tunnel, light appears
begone beastly week

into open mouth
leaf, stick, marigold, grass, leaf
baby gardener

haiku suffocate
gasping with mouths full of sand
that falls from my eyes

red tutu, white tights
so much confidence and joy
tears obscure my view

new passport photo
taken after sleepless night
bleary-eyed mug shot

poetry drowned in
a sea of expectations
now, resurfacing

five year old’s meltdown
obliterates storytime
parenting is tough
