Star Wars Day //May 4th

Day that I was born at home

War over // I cried

No fireworks //no booming guns

Mom smiled as family gathered


Our Hiakia challenge from Frank Tassone is to write a Haiku or one of the forms to write a poem from three choices. I chose Starwars Day (May 4). I was a baby boomer child born after the end of WW II. The family doctor came to our house to deliver me. I was number four or five children. This is my Tanka about that day.

  2. I too am a late baby boomer. I’ve always considered myself a misfit of the 1960’s too young to understand that current conflict, yet I had to mature early because of other family issues.

    Belated natal greetings πŸ™‚
