Mother's Day

As many of you know, I was away on Mother's Day. I was pleased to learn, upon returning, that this had taken third place in the Caribbean Kukai (Kigo: Mother's Day)

mother's day
I step over
a crack

And I wrote this one on the day itself in California

mother's day
she takes her kids
to the movies

A belated Happy Mother's Day to all.

Both good Bill. The first one feels more serious. The second one more fun. I'm sure she didn't but I wish the mother had taken the kids to see a film of her choice not theirs.
