Infant Haiku

Quietly sleeping,
little fingers grip my hand
safe inside my arms




Eyes bright with wonder
fingers reach for colored ball
spinning out of reach




Like a sandy sphinx
Torey sits and guards the child
sleeping in the sun




At the end of day
smiling child gives tired mom
feeling of content
