Mashup: NaPoWriMo, Gratitude Monday

It’s gratitude Monday and It’s CeCe’s birthday.  My gratitude is focused on her today.

Today’s NaPoWriMo challenge:

Wright a hay(na)ku). Created by the poet Eileen Tabios and named by Vince, the hay(na)ku is a variant on the haiku. A hay(na)ku consists of a three-line stanza, where the first line has one word, the second line has two words, and the third line has three words. You can write just one, or chain several together into a longer poem. For example, you could write a hay(na)ku sonnet, like the one that Vince himself wrote back during NaPoWriMo 2012!

Gratitude for a Daughter

A daughter
Born this day.

Face first
Forever her way.

Warm woman,
Filled with Love.

My Dreaming.
Gift of God.

Daughter, Sister.
Lover, giver, listener.

      Daughters are wonderful, Rena. We spend the day together on her birthday. As much a gift to me as it is to her.
