Nurture



your face glowed with joy
as your little legs tried to kick
to help push the swing

will you remember
Auntie pushing you in the swing
when you're my age?

A day I'll always cherish. This is in gracious response to One Deep Breath. This week's topic is "Nurture".

I'm sure she'll remember how special you are to her. You can feel the connection between the two of you just by looking at the photo. Precious!

I so enjoyed reading your comments. And I'm happy to share my sweet niece and our special day together with all of you. Although, a great distance divides us, we will have more fun days together to deepen the nurturing we give each other.

Peace.

That's great! I always wonder what my little niece and my friends' small children will remember about me, too. :)

Excellent take on the theme. You both seem so intent on enjoying the moment. She'll remember, either on her own or through you and your wonderful haiku.
